INTRODUCTION 

A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE VARIOUS TYLER 
IMMIGRANTS TO AMERICA. 

This representative family has its roots deep in the colonial 
soil of New England, Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland, and 
all the numerous branches are supposed to have an English 
origin. 

Representatives of the Tyler family were in nearly every 
one of the original thirteen States at the time of the formation 
of the Union. In the early wars, in the War of the Revolution 
and in the War of 1812 they were conspicuous, and in the Civil 
War some of their achievements were brilliant. Socially, the 
Tylers have reached " from the White House to the poor-house." 
Were their deeds stricken from the annals of our country the 
loss would be appreciable. 

There were several immigrant ancestors of the Tylers and 
therefore a number of independent lines. In detail, this history 
treats only of the New England lines, but a brief outline follows 
herewith of the numerous branches in America. 

Chronologically, the first record we have seen of Tylers in 
America, occurs in Camden Hotten's excellent book (based upon 
English Admiralty reports), which contains lists of emigrants 
to America between 1600 and 1700. It appears therefrom, 
that William Tyler, and his wife Elizabeth, set sail from 
England for Virginia, in 1620, on the ship Francis Bona- 
venture. He was a person of property; for, in 1622, he 
brought over, on the ships Providence and Hopewell, the fol- 
lowing six servants : " Robart More," aged 50 ; " Wm. Broune," 
aged 26; "Robert Hodd," aged 20; " Anthonie Burt," aged 
18 ; " Samiell Bennett," aged 40, and " Joane Bennett." In 
another entry in the said volume (in a list of " Living in Va., 
16 Feb., 1623"), we find the said William and Elizabeth Tyler 
are at " Hogg Island." (This island is a little down the James 
River from Jamestown, the first English- American settlement, 
1607.) It would seem that these parties intended permanent 
residence; yet, strange to say, not a jot of evidence has been

iv INTRODUCTION 

found to show that they ever had descendants. Regretfully 
as we admit it, it seems impossible to learn anything further of 
this pair; who were, probably, the very first bearing the name 
Tyler, that had courage to seek remote and perilous shores of 
a literally " New World." 

From the number of Tylers early found settled on the Chesa- 
peake, we are inclined to an hypothesis ; that they (at least some 
of them) had a common cis-Atlantic ancestor (presumably, the 
above William Tyler). Conclusive evidence of such genealogic 
links, however, is (and probably will always remain) wanting. 

Existing records point to three VIRGINIA TYLER 
BRANCHES : 

(1). YORK COUNTY BRANCH ; founded by Henry Tyler, 
bom in England in 1604, came to Virginia by 164(5 ; where, in 
1652, he had a grant of 254 acres at "Middle Plantation." 
This is the line of John Tyler, President of the United States. 

(2). WESTMORELAND COUNTY BRANCH; founded 
by Charles Tyler, about 1690; who died about 1723, leaving 
four sons. 

(3). ESSEX COUNTY BRANCH; founded by Richard 
Tyler, about 1690; who was licensed, in 1723, to keep an 
" ordinary ". and died in 1734, leaving three sons and two 
daughters. 

IN BEAUFORT COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA, are 

found early Tyler records; possibly of a line migrated from 
Virginia. 

IN MARYLAND we find several early Tylers domiciled; 
between whom appears no record of relationship: 

(1). Edward Tyler was brought over in 1657 by John Wag- 
hop ; but no land grant or settlement of his estate is found. 

(2). Robert Tyler was brought over in 1649 by Henry Cat- 
lin ; and will was probated in Calvert Co., in 1674 ; he left an 
only son, who resided at " Brough," Prince George Co., on 
Patuxent River. 

(3). John Tyler settled on Smith's Island, Somerset Co., 
before 1700 ; who, by two marriages, left five sons. Will pro- 
bated 1733. 



INTRODUCTION v 

(4). William Tyler, of Pomonkey, Charles Co., leaves a will 
in 1755 ; which mentions a son and two daughters. 

(5). The will of Edmund Tyler of " Bohemia Manor," Cecil 
County, 1738, mentions three sons. 

Near SALEM, N. J., on AUoway's Creek, about 1688, Wil- 
liam Tyler, Quaker, from Greinton, Somerset County, England, 
settled. Descendants known as " THE SALEM, N. J. LINE." 

In CONNECTICUT we find several early clansmen who may 
have been closely related. 

(1). Roger Tyler (previously in Massachusetts), leaves an 
inventory of an estate in New Haven in 1673. It has been 
thought by some that he was the progenitor of the " Branford " 
Tylers, but proof is lacking. 

(2). In BRANFORD, CONN., four brothers, George, Peter, 
Francis and Charles appear on the records about 1667 and 
their descendants are called " THE. BRANFORD LINE." 

(3). William Tyler took the "Oath of FidelHtie" in New 
Haven in 1657, and his descendants are known as " THE 
WALLINGFORD LINE." 

In RHODE ISLAND John Tyler was in Portsmouth as 
early as 1655. The branch is known as "THE RHODE 
ISLAND LINE." 

In PROVIDENCE, R. L, "Widow Joan Tiler" appears as 
early as 1638, where she shared in Roger Williams' tract. 

The MASSACHUSETTS BAY COLONY furnished a sur- 
prisingly large number of original immigrants of the Tyler 
name, some of whom have left descendants who have been traced. 

In and about Boston we find the following: 

(1). John Tyler, shopkeeper in Charlestown by 1696. He 
had a son John, born in 1696. The father died in Carolina. 
If there are latter-day descendants they are thus far untraced. 

(2). Thomas Tyler was of Boston before 1685. His de- 
scendants are known as " THE THOMAS TYLER BOSTON 
LINE." 

(3). William Tyler, a ropemaker, was in Boston in 1784. 



VI 



INTRODUCTION 



His descendants are known as " THE WILLIAM TYLER 
BOSTON LINE." 

(4<). Mrs. Ann Tyler, widow of John Tyler, died in Boston, 
April 30, 1694, aged 40 years and was buried in the Granary 
burying-ground on Tremont street, where her stone may still 
be seen. It is probably the oldest American Tyler grave-stone. 

In ESSEX COUNTY, MASS., we find the following: 

(1). Job Tyler, in Andover, about 1640. His descendants, 
comprising by far the larger part of this History, are known 
as « THE JOB TYLER LINE." 

(2). Abraham Tyler, in Haverhill, by 1640. Left no de- 
scendants, but his record, will and inventory are given herein. 

(3). Nathaniel Tyler, of Lynn. Mass., by 1640. No record 
of descendants. 

(4). John Tyler, of Gloucester. Descendants known as 
« THE GLOUCESTER LINE." 

(5). Roger Tyler, of Lynn. The same man who is mentioned 
under " Connecticut." 

In MAINE a man named Thomas Taylor settled in Bowdoin- 
ham and changed his name to Tyler. He has living descend- 
ants known as " THE BOWDOINHAM LINE." 

In CANADA Captain Isaac Bartholomew Tyler was found 
by 1790, and later settled in Lewiston, Niagara County, N. Y. 

Abraham, Nathaniel and Job are all heard of, among the first 
settlers of their respective neighborhoods, about the year 1640. 
This fact suggests possible relationships. The only corrobora- 
_tive evidence (if we may thus dignify so remote facts) lies in 
the recollection that Moses, son of Job, had sons " Joseph " 
and " Nathaniel " (both of whom died s. p.). The immigrant, 
Nathaniel, had an only " son Joseph " — and Moses had also 
a son " James." whose son " Abraham " brought in some later 
generations by that name. We do not lean heavily upon such 
hypothesis ; having learned, after strenuous labors, much to 
distrust general record-suggestions, as well as vague traditions. 
So, having raised the question (unanswerable), we pass on the 
well-trodden path. 



INTRODUCTION vii 

Though two of the above first settlers touched but briefly 
our colonial history, we give the records found. 

ABRAHAM TYLER, was in Haverhill, Mass., in 1640 ; died 
May 6, 1673 ; married, December 2G, 1650, Hannah Freeman. 

Chase's History of Haverhill says : " The first company of 
settlers in the wild woods of Pentucket [Haverhill] were from 
Ipswich and Newbury, and were twelve in number." He places 
the year at 1640 ; Cotton Mather says, 1641 ; Winthrop says, 
about 1643 (Andover being settle J at this same period). What- 
ever the date, Abraham Tyler, with three others, from Ipswich, 
and eight from Newbury, came " in June " to remain. In 
1645 Abraham was _one of the thirty-two landholders there. 
In 1648, his valuation is put at £60. June 7, 1652, the Second 
Division of plough-land was laid out, in the proportion of four 
acres to one acre of house-lot ; of the forty-one sharers, Abra- 
ham (No. 5) had four acres. [Thomas Whittier, probably an 
ancestor of the poet, had 7^ acres.] September 7th of the same 
year, the town voted, that Abraham should blow his horn to 
call the people to meeting, and receive one peck of com from 
every family for the year ensuing. (Early historians adver- 
tised the stipend as " a pound of pork." But careful Mirick 
says, a " close " inspection of the records reads, beyond doubt, 
a " peck of com.") At the May, 1653, session of the General 
Court, we find Abraham's name on a petition, praying for a 
revocation of previous sentence, passed upon one Pike of Salis- 
bury, who had been heavily finev. and disfranchised for openly 
declaring, " such persons as did act in making that law [i. e., 
prohibiting certain persons from exhorting the people on the 
Sabbath, in the absence of a minister] did break their oath to 
the country, for it is against the liberty of tho country, both 
civil and ecclesiastical." [Following the hubbub raised thereby, 
the Haverhill signers " acknowledged their ofi'ence " : Pike paid 
the fine, and was relieved of the disability.] In July, 1667, 
" accommodation " land was laid out to " Goodman [Abraham] 
Tiler," to the amount of " 4 acres." (" Haverhill " then in- 
cluded, not only most of Methuen, Mass., but also Salem, 
Hempstead, Plaistow and Atkinson, New Hampshire.) Chil- 
dren : 

Abraham^, born H., June 4, 1652; died aged two years. 



viii INTRODUCTION 

Hannah, bom H., Dec. 16, 1655 ; died aged six years. 
Abraham, born H., May 21, 1659 ; died aged nine years. 

Five years after he had seen his hope of a posterity fade from 
sight. May 5, 1673, he executed his will, by " marke." He died 
before "ye 14th: 8th. mo: 1673," on which date, the " relict" 
takes order from the Court at Hampton ; and April 14, 1674, 
witnesses the probate duly made, at Salisbury. (Norfolk Co. 
Sees., " lib. 2d, pa. 321," and Salem files No. 28, 426.) April 
14, 1674', came " Inventorie " for £105 ; which is extremely in- 
teresting, both as a study in phonetic orthography and as show- 
ing the personal effects of a Puritan pioneer. Surely our clan 
will read, not without a certain interest, of the well-intended 
efforts of this fated line ; and j oin in wishing their undiscoverable 
grave, Requiescat im pace! |

X INTRODUCTION 

Salisbury Court Aprill f 14th-1674. Ent= f 23d day of 
Aprill 1674. 

NATHANIEL TYLER, according to the History of Lynn, 
was a resident of that place in 1640. 

He does not seem satisfied by prospects, however, for by 
deed, October 1, 1652 {Essex Co. Registry, Vol. I, p. 20), he 
and wife, Jane, sell unto " Philip Kirtland, shoemaker," all 
their " lands and houses, with their appurtenances, in Lynn." 
On the 16th of October, of the same year (1652), we find his 
"will" on record at Boston (Suffolk Deeds, Vol. I, p. 248), 
wheref rom it is evident : that he is setting out on a sea voyage ; 
that he takes aboard £80, to be paid " by bill of exchange " in 
London or Shrewsbury, England, leaving £24 to be sent on 
within a month; that, if he dies before reaching his journey's 
end, his son Joseph Tyler, of Shrewsbury, shall have £50, and 
his wife Jane, the remainder; but, if she die on the voyage, 
Joseph is to have all and pay 40/ to testator's lister Jane, 
wife of Edward Sanford of London. 

No further recoi-d of him has been found in this country. 



THE DESCENDANTS OF JOB TYLER 



Descendants of Job Tyler, The 
Immigrant 

FIRST GENERATION 

JOB* TYLER was bom about 1619, as in a deposition of 
1659, his age is stated as " about 40 yeares." The author of 
this history (who died before its publication) left a note stating 
that he had never been able to " find a scintilla of evidence 
upon which to base " the tradition that Job Tyler was a native 
of Shropshire, England. Job's death is nowhere recorded. It 
is conjectured that he died in Mendon and was there buried, 
but no proof is at hand to confirm the supposition. He married 

Mary . It has been thought by one of the descendants 

of Job engaged in research that she may have been a widow 
Horton, but the proof of this statement has not been forth- 
coming. She was dismissed to the church in " Mendham " 
from the church in Roxbury on the 28th day of the third 
month (May), 1665. Her birth and death are unrecorded so 
far as present research has gone. 

The first known of Job Tyler in this country may be found in 
the Rhode Island Collections, p. 92, as follows : " Inhabitants 
admitted at the Towne of Nieu-Port since the 20th of the Srd 
1638 . . . Job Tyler." No other person of this name is 
known except the Job Tyler who appeared soon after in the 
Massachusetts Bay Colony. From the same authority (p. 
24), we learn that a "Widow Tyler" in the same year, 1638, 
was one of the 54 who received lots out of Roger Williams' 
tract in Providence. In 1640 (p. 31, Ibid.), she was still a 
widow but was more fully described as " Joan " and signed 
the " Compact." The author was inclined to think she was a 
relict of a brother of Job Tyler, though Savage says she was 
" possibly his mother." There was an early John Tyler who 
died in Portsmouth, R. I., in 1700, whom the author took to be 
a near relative of Job. He founded a line of his own which 



4 The Descendants of Job Tylee. 

has a place in this history, known as "The Rhode Island 

Line." 

Job Tyler is said to have been found in Andover, Mass., by 
the first colonists there, a solitary squatter, about 1639-4!0 ; the 
earliest dates of the settlement of Andover are conjectural, as 
the town records before 1650 are lost, and the records of the 
church which have been preserved date from 1708. A few years 
later he was in Roxbury, Mass., as witness the following from 
the old records: "11 month, 1 day, 1646, Lambert G-enry 

hath liberty to sell his Land beyond the mill Creeke to 

Tyler of Roxberye." (Dedham Town Records.) " 1646, 
Month 1, day 28. A lit infant also a twinn of Job Tilers 
dyed." {Roxhury Church Records.) He soon returned to 
Andover, for March 5, 1650, " Jobe Tyler of Andover" mort- 
gaged property there to John Godfrey, the beginning of 
trouble for Job and others. 

1650 — Job's Mortgage, mentioned in Boxford History. Also 
Andover Rec, Book iv, p. 8. 

Witnes these presents, that Jobe Tiler of Andover in ye 
county of Essex, doth acknowledge himselfe to be owing & in- 
debted unto John Godfry of Newbury in the Said covnty, the 
fuU & just some of Sixteene pounds to be paid to him the said 
John Godfry. the one halfe, viz: the eight pounds in good 
merchantable wheat at fowerer Shillings p. bushell & ye other 
halfe in like good & merchantable rye at three Shillings & Six 
pence p. bushell, the payment to be made on the first of March 
come two yeare next after this date, to the which payment well & 
truly to be made, the said Jobe Tyler doth binde himselfe, his 
heires, executors, administrators & assignees firmly by these pre- 
sents, and hereunto hath sett to his hand, this fift day of March, 
1650. The said Jobe Tyler doth bind over his house & land 
& three cowes, in further assurance for his performance of this 
bill; wch house and land & three cowes, Scituate in Andevour 
aforesd, the said Jobe Tyler shall not anyway dispose of, from 
ye Said John Godfry, directly or indirectly, by letting or 
selling, according to ye tenor purport and true intent of these 
presents.

Also from Andover Rec, Bk. II, p. 1, the following:, 
Know all men by these presents, that I Job Tiler of Andover, 
in the covntye of Essex, have given, granted, Sovld and Sett 
over vnto John Godfry of the Same Towne and covntye. my 
dwelling house in which I now dwell, with a bame and land 
about it. Contenining twenty five acres, be it more or less,

fence and rayle fence, also two parcells of meddow one of them 
lyeing about halfe a mile from the said plow land by a pine 
swamp, the other parcel of meddow lying about a mile olF ; both 
of the sayd parcells of meddow being granted and layd out 
for nyne acres, the latter parcell lying by the meddow of John 
Rvss, together with the fences & appvrtenances belonging to 
it. To have and to hovld all that my said house, bame land

In witness whereof I the sd Job Tiler have herevnto sett my

Job had much legal trouble in Andover. 

We find in 1658 that a charge was brought against John 



6 The Descendants of Job Ttleb. 

Godfrey of witchcraft and the accuser and principal sufferer 
from his " wiles " was Mary, wife of Job Tyler. This accusa- 
tion was brought in connection with a law-suit against Godfrey 
and the accusation was not established. One annalist calls 
Godfrey " this hard-bitted money lender " and hints that there 
may have been some cause for the bitterness shown by the 
Tylers toward him. This was a day of superstition, and al- 
though the delusion of witchcraft had not attacked the com- 
munity as a whole, a little deposition in which Job's family 
joined against Godfrey shows the temper of the time. The 
" deposicion " although sworn to in 1659 was brought forward 
in 1665 again, and reads as follows : 

" The Deposicion of Job Tylar aged about 40 yeares, Mary 
his wife, Moses Tylar his son aged between 17 and 18 yeares 
and Mary Tylar about 15 yeares old. These deponents wit- 
nesse, that they saw a thing like a bird to come in at the door of 
their house, with John Godfrey, in the night, about the bigness 
of a blackbird, or rather bigger, to wit, as big as a pigeon and 
did fly about, John Godfrey laboring to catch it and the bird 
vanished as they conceived through the chinck of a joynted 
bord. . . . This was as they remember about 5 or 6 yeares 
since. Taken upon oath of the above four mentioned ptie this 
27, 4, '59, before me, Simon Bradstreet. 

" Owned in Court 7 March, 1665 by Job Tyler & Moses Tyler, 
E. R. Sec. 

" Owned in Court 13 March '65 by Mary Tyler on her former 
oath. E. R. Sec." 

Drake, in his Annals says : " It is very reasonable to suppose 
that the evidence against Godfrey was of too ridiculous a char- 
acter to be seriously considered and that he was discharged." 

Other legal trouble arose in connection with Thomas Chan- 
dler of Andover, to whom Job had apprenticed his son, Hope- 
still, and which bargain, for some reason. Job desired to dis- 
solve. He went to the house of Nathan Parker, where the 
signed instrument was kept, and took it from the house in the 
absence of Mr. Parker, thus giving rise to much hard criticism. 
The matter was a cause of long controversy for over ten years 
and was carried from court to court. Finally Job lost the suit 
and the decision or " award " was that as Job was poor he 



FiEST Generation 7 

should not be fined above six pounds, but the following penalty 
was imposed: 

" We do order that Job Tyler shall nayle up or fasten upon 
the posts of Andover & Roxbury meeting-houses in a plain 
legible hand, the acknowledgement to remain so fastened for 
the space of 14 days, it to be fastened within the 14 days at 
Andover and to-morrow being the 27th of January, 1665 at 
Roxbury. . . ." 

This confession and acknowledgment was as follows : 

" Whereas it doth appear by sufficient testimony that I, Job 
Tiler, have shamefully reproached Thomas Chandler of An- 
dover by saying he is a base, lying cozening, cheating knave, 
that he hath got his estate by cozening in a base reviling man- 
ner & that he was recorded for a liar & that he was a cheating, 
lying whoreing knave fit for all manner of bawdery, wishing 
that the devill had him. Therefore I Job Tiler doe acknowledge 
that I have in these expressions most wickedly slandered the

Job has a parting blow from Godfrey in 1661-62, in a suit 
regarding wheat for which Job owed him, and the £5 demanded 
included going to Salisbury to fetch the writings out of the 
court. 

In 1662, three years before the above penalty was given by 
the court. Job had paid his last minister's rate, 10 shillings, 
and had shaken the soil -of Andover from off his feet. Not only 
had he not been popular with some of his neighbors, but some- 
thing had occurred to cause him to give up his holdings in 
Andover, and in one case, that of Godfrey, no consideration is 
named in the instrument.

Doubtless Job never intended to return to Andover, when he 
set his face toward Roxbury once more and probably the 
horse, for which he had bargained his 12 Andover acres, accom- 
panied him. 

The year 1665 was to prove an eventful and unpleasant year 
for Job. In January the court decided against him in his 
suit against Godfrey and, as shown in the foregoing deposition 
he had to take back, in a public manner, his accusations against 
Chandler's character. To get even with his Andover foe, God- 
frey, he and his family again take oath in court to the old 
deposition of 1659 in March 1665. 

In Roxbury, or rather in or near the present town of Natick, 
Job again gets into trouble, as the following document will 
show: 

" Sept. 11, 1665. Owannamang Indian Chiefe, neere Marl- 
borough complained of Job Tyler of Roxbury for cutting and 
carrying off hay from his meadows. Fined 2 shillings and six 
pence, and cost 10 shillings. Attested by me, Daniel Gookin," 
September 22, 1665, John Eliot (the Apostle to the Indians) 
certified that Job Tyler had paid. 

At some period after his migration from Andover to Rox- 
bury in 1662, Job went to Mendon, and he is among those who 
drew lots in June, 1671, " for dubling of their houselots." But 
previous to this he had some controversy, in 1669, with both 
town and church authorities in Mendon. Therefore we find 
that: 

" July 14, 1669 the Selectmen mett and ordered to send to 
the Constable to Summon before us Job Tyler the next fryday 
at one of the clock, at Gregory Cook's house, to answer his 
contempt of our orders, and alsoe why he refuses to worke 
aboute the Selor [cellar] at the Minister's house, at yt tyme 
ye Constable Retoume his answer to us. . . . July 16. 
The Selectmen met accordingly and the said Constable made 
his Retoume that he had warned in Job Tyler before us. his 
answer was he could not nor would come, but if the Selectmen 



12 The Descendants of Job Tyi^b, 

had more to say to him than he to them they might come to 
him. Upon this answer of Job Tyler's the Townesmen Re- 
solved to make their complaint to the Magistrates of his con- 
tempt of several of the Selectmen's orders and of his Miscar- 
riages of the Lord's Day & at Pubhque assemblies if he doe not 
Submytt, wch he did not." (Job was a true descendant of that 
primal irrepressible family rebel, Wat Tyler, " Kentish man," 
of England.) 

Job must, however, have possessed some of the graces of 
human nature, for his shortcomings were readily condoned. 
On the following " December 1st," he is " on the list," helping 
to confirm (in his humble way) Rev. Joseph Emerson, the first 
settled minister of Mendon. Later comes entry (in as formally 
dignified tones as the accusation) : — " Whereas there has been 
complaint against Job Tiler heretofore recorded, he has given 
satisfaction for that ofence." 

After this date we hear no more of Job's controversies. 

In 1676 the birth of one of his grandchildren was recorded 
in Roxbury, and he may have returned there on account of King- 
Philip's war, as Mendon was burned and the inhabitants fled. 

"When the outbreak of King PhiHp's war came, everybody 
buried the pewter plates and the brass kettles in the swamps, 
loaded the . . . horses with the precious feather beds and 
children and . . . simply ' skedaddled ' to safety . . . 
Neither red nor white brother let Job rest. ... In 
1680 he is living in Rowley Village with all the other good 
kickers against Rowley taxes, and Moses and old Goodman 
Tyler are duly inspected to see if they go to church." (Miss 
Charlotte Abbott's Annals of Andover.) 

In 1680 Job was in Rowley Village and he may have been 
in Andover in 1681, but in 1688, 1689, 1691 and 1695 he was 
paying minister's rates in Mendon. The last item credited to 
Job is of a deed to his son Moses of land in Mendon. This is 
dated 1700 and is recorded in the Boston Registry of Deeds, 
Book XX, p. 127.

In these old records we thus have a word-picture of this 
ancestor of a long line of Tylers, such as hardly has been found 
of any other American immigrant. Professor Henry M. Tyler 
has said of him : " He was a rude, self-asserting, striking 
personality. Not to be left out of account in the forces which 
were to possess the land." There are but few high-lights in 
the picture; the shadows are all there. He did not, as Pro- 
fessor Tyler said, " learn prudence very fast, but he was him- 
self. . . . He had a good deal of individuality and he 
gave utterance to it at times with more vigor than grace. He 
did not shape his words to suit sensitive ears. He resented 
dictation and found it hard to restrain himself from what he 
wanted to do through any prudential policy." Yet, when you 
shall read hereafter what manner of men his sons and grandsons 
were and what they stood for in all the places where they lived ; 
as you come down through the years, generation by generation, 
and see what thousands of his descendants have stood for in 
their homes and before the public, in peace and in war, as 
pioneers and as dwellers in the cities, you will realize that there 
must have been good stock in the old man ; and he trained a 
family to be useful and honored in the communities where they 
dwelt. Superstitious, wilful, hot-tempered, independent and 
self-reliant Job Tyler lives and breathes in this record nearly 
three centuries after his time. He did not have saints to live 
with; were all the truth known, it would be seen that he was 
on a par with a large proportion of his neighbors. The Puri- 
tan iron rule, which made no allowances for any man, met a 
sturdy opposition in this possible descendant of Wat Tyler of 
England, and it is now too late to determine whether or not he 
was always justified. From this old canvas there gazes steadily 
out, not an ideal but a very real personage, an out and out 
Yankee type. 

It had been suggested that the progenitor of so many thou- 
sand men and women, covering the greater part of three cen- 
turies which have passed since the early voyager set his foot 
(the first permanent one) upon Andover soil, should be honored 
by some fitting monument, since none was in existence. Ac- 



16 The Descendants of Job Tyler 

cordingly, in response to written appeal, numbers of the clan 
joined their "mites," to thus honor their forebear, and the 
memorial was dedicated at the sixth Tyler Reunion, September 
4, 1'901. The spot selected was beside the grave of the immi- 
grant's eldest son, Moses, whose ancient slate slab, with its 
legend of " 1727," has survived with wonderful completeness. 
Here, under a giant evergreen, upon a cubic yard of cement 
and cobble stones which was brought just to the surface of the 
ground, was placed a large hard-grained boulder, brought from 
the old Tyler farm (now known as the Woods place), four 
miles distant in West Boxford; a homestead which has known 
Tyler blood and heirship uninterruptedly from the first gen- 
eration, when it was acquired from the Indians, to the present 
day. 

Upon the boulder was securely riveted a bronze tablet, cast 
in Boston, which bears the following legend : —

Andover, October 2, 1727 ; married (1), July 6, 1666, Prudence 
Blake, born April 15, 1647 ; died March 9, 1689 ; daughter of 
George and Dorothy Blake, of Gloucester, Mass. (who early 
moved to Boxford) ; married (2), about 169+) Sarah (Hasey)

1718, Mrs. Martha Fisk, bom about 1649 ; died February 13, 
1735. 

From the " deposicion," before Gov. Bradstreet, of Job Tyler, 
wherein the son joined, " 27, 4, 1659," we know, that Moses 
Tyler was then "between seventeen & eighteen yeares." 

In " Rowley Village," on the old homestead, which has long 
been called (from one of Moses' sons), "The Captain John 
Tyler place," Moses began to clear a farm, rear a family, and 
became a locally conspicuous citizen. As Job, the immigrant, 
was undoubtedly here for a time with his son (in 1680), and 
the place still remains in a direct Tyler descent, it is, historically 
speaking, the most interesting of any of our various Tyler 
homesteads, in that it has been in the family two and a third 
centuries, and sheltered members of every generation from the 
first (something which cannot be said of any other spot). (See 
No. 11.) 

The Tyler homestead came within that part of ancient Row- 
ley, known as " Rowley Village," Moses Tyler being on the com- 
mittee to fix the bounds between the parent and offspring towns. 
The main settlement of Rowley Village was in the present village 
of old Boxford ; while Moses' homestead was within the portion 
incorporated, June 28, 1735, into the new, West Boxford. 
(There were continuously male Tylers here, from Moses' arrival, 
1666, to the time of death of the late Phineas Tyler, 1885; 
while the blood, through intermarriage, is yet abundant.) 
Moses Tyler was prominent from the outset in Boxford town 

17 



18 The Descendants of Job Tyleb, 

matters ; but, while most of his townsfolk went over to Topsfield 
" to meeting," Moses found it nearer and more convenient, to 
continue his church affiliation at Andover. 

He repeatedly served his town as selectman, committee-man, 
surveyor, constable, etc., so often that we can plainly read, he 
was a very prominent town citizen. In 1685 he was on a com- 
mittee to lay out several highways ; in October, 1690, he became 
a " freeman "; in 1691, '94, '95, '98 and 1712, he was a select- 
man; May 11, 1699, was on committee to settle bounds between 
Boxford and Salem, Topsfield, Andover and Bradford, or any 
townships formerly granted out of the confines of old Rowley. 

January 8, 1689, the town selectmen made a rate of £8, to lay 
in its first stock of ammunition ; Moses Tyler (with three others) 
being ordered to gather it and expend for " Poudr & bullets and 
flents." Additions thereto were made from time to time, espe- 
cially during Indian hostilities ; and August 14, 1696, Moses 
became the custodian of " ten pound of powder, sixty pound 
of bullets and fifty flintes," and " hee is to keep this part of the 
Town Stock teall the Select men See Caues to lodg it in Sum 
other place. For such services, he acquired the title of " Quar- 
termaster," which was usually applied to him ; though on his 
gravestone we see, he, or somebody, preferred the plain " Mr.," 
which was a title of dignity in those days. 

For many years after incorporation, Boxford had no church ; 
most of its citizens attended at Topsfield, where Boxford, till 
1702, paid " minister's rates." In 1691 Boxford appointed a 
committee of five, to fix upon a central site for a local church 
edifice ; Moses being one of the five. The construction of this 
church (probably for lack of means) dragged along for a period 
of ten years, during which, January 29, 1695, Moses is ap- 
pointed on the committee to carry on the building. In 1701 
it was done, and, January 9, presented to the town ; being in 
the present " East Parish." * 

* As this church is so historic of our early generations, a list of Tyler 
communicants is set out. As Job paid! " ministers' rates " here, it is 
reasonable to think both he and his wife, Mary, were early attendants, 
though at a period of which records were lost. His sons HopestlU, John 
and wife were communicants, until their removal to Mendon; also Moses, 
eldest son of Job and wife Prudence, died while members. Jacob (Moses' 
only son to live at Andover) took up his pew with his wife, in 1721, and 
his 2nd wife was admitted in 1729; Jacob, Jr., and his wife, in 1750, and 
his 9nd wife in 1752; also, in 1756; his brother Moses and wife, and sister 
Abigail, became members. These brothers removing (the one to Haver- 



Second Geneeation 19 

Moses, while actively interested over Boxford church building, 
affiliated with Andover congregation, whose records are missing 
up to 1708. However, from a " List of communicants in 
1686," we see that Moses, as well as his wife, was a member 
at that date. From the preserved records we learn how promi- 
nent a member Moses really was. When the subject, dividing 
Andover into two parishes, came up, it caused much feeling. 
October 2, 1710, he is placed on the committee of five, " To warn 
Precinct meetings, and are empowered to warn a meeting when 
they shall see cause." On the 23d of the same month, Moses 
is one of a committee of four " To proportion the work on the 
precinct, in providing timber for the new meeting house accord- 
ing to previous vote." March 19, 1711, he is on the committee 
of three, " Chosen to discourse the South precinct in any mat- 
ter in controversy, referring to petition lately offered to Gen- 
eral Court." December 24, same year, he is on committee of 
seven, " To take account of the work ye men have done about 
the new meeting house, & set valuation on it," etc. June 30, 
1712, he is on committee, " To tak an account of cost that the 
committee was at that may manage the precint's affairs at the 
General Court, or otherwise, in order to the recovering of the 
SOO families back again to us." October '31, 1715, " Quarter- 
master M. Tyler was chosen Treasurer, till another is chosen 
in his room in ye office for said precinct." And he was re-elected 
for the consecutive terms, 1717, '18, '19, '20. Before this, 
while a resident of Rowley Village in 1681 (with some other 
distant members) it had been allowed " to set a house for their 
convenience for families and horse, on Sabbath days." 

We find Moses' rate of 1692 on record, but are unable to 
give a fairly complete account, until his later years, as follows : 

1712, Moses Tyler's rate and proportion for minister's salary, 
18s., 6d. ; 1715, 17s., 3d. ; 1716, 19s., lOd. ; 1718, £1, 9s., lid. ; 
1719, £1, lis., 7d. ; 1720, £1, 12s., 7d. ; 1724, £1, 6s., 9d. ; 1726, 
£1, 2s., 6d. 

The foregoing exhibits a high-rate payer ; therefore, a man of 
means. 

From Salem deeds, we know he was a large landed proprietor ; 
frequently acquiring, seldom parting with, real estate. The 

hill, the other to Woburn), the family ceased to be represented in the 
community, for the time being. Since those times, later branches have 
been affiliated with this organization, from which the blood, by intermar- 
riage, has never at any point of its history been entirely lacking.

old homestead, as later taxed, shows how much had hung to- 
gether, though much had meantime been granted to others of 
the kin, or ahenated to strangers. From Boxford town rate, 
1687 (under Gov. Andros), we see: " Moses Tyler, 3 heads; 1 
house ; 20 acres ; 4 oxen, 3 horses ; ,5 cows, 5 young cattle ; aO 
sheep; 3 swine; tax, 11/ 6d." (Only two stood higher.) In 
1699, Nov. a5, he bought of Nathan Stevens of Andover, 5 
acres, meadow and upland, and thus became owner of a saw- 
mill; in 1698, Moses (wife " Sara " joining) for £15, sells Philip 
Atwood of Bradford, 1 of some " salt marsh at Plum Island 
in Rowley." In 1700, Nov. 27, he, for £60, has of his father. 
Job, a house lot in Mendon, 15 acres, with 5 acres added from 
2nd division ; which he sold the following year at £1 profit, to 
John Famum of Andover, son-in-law of Moses' brother Hope- 
still. 1708, May 20, Moses (with consent of Sara), gives to 
John Tyler (his 2nd son), of Boxford, 107 acres in Boxford. 
(Probably part of the old homestead.) " 1 line running to a 
tree in Andover line, about 50 rods from the Great Hill end, 
then to run Easterly upon said line till it meets with Ephraim 
Foster's line, which is part of the 400 acres laid out by Rowley 
town to John Commins, Thomas Dorman & Robt. Stiles." In 
1712 (with consent of " Sara"), Moses, for "love of his son 
Jonathan, carpenter, of Boxford," gives Boxford land, 80 acres 
north of Ipswich road, near brother Ebenezer's land, also near 
brother James' land, " some sponges of meadow," with " Shaven 
Crown to Clay Pit Swamp," a boundary line (which localities 
are still so known). In 1718, Moses (then a widower) deeds 
to his son Jacob, youngest born, ^ of his arable land, meadow, 
orchard, west end of dwelling house, cellar, stock and husbandry 
tools in Andover. Again, in 1718, he deeds to son-in-law, Eben- 
ezer Stevens (husband of his step-daughter, Sara Sprague), 
" shoe meadow," a valuable tract of old Tyler Boxford home- 
stead. Moses' second wife, by her Sprague marriage, had had 
several daughters, who thus came to live with their stepfather; 
which was the occasion of general authority. Savage, and the 
local authority, Perley (Hist, of Boxford), making the mistake 
of recording them as Moses' own daughters. In extenuation 
of which error, however, we find the girls named in Moses' will 
in such terms as to admit of the supposition, and further, at 
least, one of them was later called by the name " Tyler," as 
evidenced by witchcraft proceedings, wherein one is designated 



Second Geneeation SI 

as " Martha Tyler, alias Sprague." Indeed, the custom became 
so established that, according to Andover records, when 
" Martha " married (June 5, 1701, Richard Friend, seaman, of 
Salem), she married as a "Tyler." (See Charlestown Gene- 
alogies by Wyman, also Witchcraft Papers, p. 61, in Mass. 
State House.) 

Moses Tyler's wife Sarah died in 1718; whereupon, without 
long widowerhood, he married the widow, Martha Fisk. The 
town records say the ceremony took place July 25, 1718; but 
the church annals put the solemnization August 13, 1718. 
They appear to have lived congenially together for almost a 
decade, when Moses, from Andover, whither he removed from 
Boxford about 1697, passed off the scene.

and Daniel Grant, " chaundler," of Salem, sureties. Several 
interesting accounts appear. A note of intestate, dated Oct, 
11, 1699. for '30y, received from Samuel Wakefield, of Salem, is 
presented, which " I do promise to Lay out for sd Wakefield

Lastly, is thrown a side-light upon collateral relations. 
The deceased, had had from " Phineas Sprague, Jr., of Mai-

went to Barbadoes), Oct. 7, 1698, "one Brown horse on bord 
the Ship Lion," &c., " Bound for Barbadoes," there to be sold, 
*' should he live, and " I to lay out the neett produse in Barbados 
goods — that goods I shall think Best." It may have been, 
that Joseph died in the West Indies. In 1692, he had been 
among the " confessed " witches ; led into it (with two cousins, 
Martha and Joanna Tyler) " by Abigail Faulkner."

He had a son and daughter by first wife. Mary was accused 
of witchcraft. Children, by first marriage: 
21 Mary Post, born Sept. ^9, 1664. 

She was accused of witchcraft, and tried at Salem, in Janu- 
ary, 169^3, as vouched by the following papers in the case: 

" Mary Post, of Rowley, in the County of Essex, single 
woman, being indicted by the jurors for our Sovereign Lord & 
Lady, the King & Queen, upon their oathes, by two several 
indictments, that is to say: 1st., For that she, the said Mary 
Post, of Rowley in the Co. of Essex, single woman, about three 
years ago, in the town of Rowley aforesaid, wickedly, mali- 
tiously and feloniously, a covenant with the Devil did make 
and signed the Devil's book, and was baptized by the Devil, & 
renounced her former Christian baptism, by which diabolical 
covenant, with the Devil made, she, the said Mary Post, is 
become a detestable witch, contrary to the peace of our Sover- 
eign Lord & Lady, the King & Queen, their crown and dignity, 
& the laws in that case made and provided. 2d. For that she, 
the said Mary Post of Rowley, single woman, sometime in the 
month of July last, in the year 1692 aforesaid, & divers other 
days and times, as well before as after, certain detestable arts, 
called witchcrafts and sorceries, wickedly, malitiously and felo- 
niously hath used practiced and exercised at and in the town 
of Andover, in the Co. of Essex aforesaid, upon and against 
one Timothy Swan, of Andover aforesaid, by which said 
wicked arts, the said Timothy Swan the day and year aforesaid 
and divers other days and times as well before as after was and 
is tortured, afflicted, tormented, consumed, pined & wasted, 
against the peace of our Sovereign Lord & Lady, the King & 
Queen, their crown and dignity & against the laws in that case 
made and provided." " Upon the aforesaid indictment and each 
of them, the said Mary Post was then & there before the Jurors 
of our Lord & Lady, the King & Queen aforesaid, arraigned and 
upon her arraignment did then and there, the day and year 
aforesaid, plead to them & each of them not guilty, & put her- 
self upon trial by God and her country." 



Second GENEaATioN S.5 

" A Jury being called, Benayah Titcomb, Foreman, John 
Witt, Joseph Little, John Pickard, Edmund Gale, John Emer- 
son, John Ordway, John Abby, Seth Story, John Hall, Nathan- 
iel Emerson & Eleazer Gyles, and accordingly sworn, no excep- 
tion being made by the prisoner, the said indictments and each 
of them being read, together with evidences and examinations 
and the prisoner's defence being heard, the Jury went out to 
agree on their verdict, which returning did then and there in 
open court deliver their verdict, that the said Mary Post was 
guilty of covenanting with the Devil, for which she stood 
indicted in the second indictment. The Court ordered the 
keeper of the Goale to take care of the prisoner according to 
law." Soon after, she was sentenced to death: but was finally 
reprieved." 

N. B. — The Clerk of Court's records of Salem, of this period, 
verifies that many of the accused and their friends claimed, 
and received, " damages," for false accusations ; their receipts 
being on file. We illustrate as follows : — " By His Excellency, 
the Governor. Whereas ye General Assembly in their last ses- 
sion accepted ye report of their comitte appointed to consider 
of ye Damages Sustained by Sundry persons prosecuted for 
Witchcraft in ye year 1692 Vizt. . . . Mary Post, £8. 14." 

22 Joanna Post, bom Sept. IS, 1666; she was an accuser 
in a witchcraft trial, and herself, at another time, was 
accused, but acquitted.

27 Mehitable Bridges, bom April 29, 1688. 

4 HOPESTH^L^ TYLER (JOB^), bom about 1646, 
probably in Roxbury or Andover, Mass. ; died in Preston, Conn., 
January 20, 1734, " in ye 89th year of his age " according to 
the rather rude stone which marks his grave in the old burying 
ground in Preston; married in Mendon, January 20, 1668, 
Mary Lovett, bom in Mendon, March 7, 1652-53 ; said to have 



26 The Descendants of Job Tyleb 

died in 1732; daughter of Daniel Lovett, of Braintree and 
Mendon. Hopestill went to Andover with his father, who ap- 
prenticed him in 1658 to a blacksmith of Andover, Thomas 
Chandler ; the boy was to be taught the blacksmith trade " so 
far as he was capable to learn " for a period of 9^ years ; was 
to be taught to read the Bible and write so as to keep a book 
for his trade, and to be allowed " convenient meat and drinke, 
washing, lodging and clothes." Something occurred to sicken 
the father of this bargain and he took arbitrary steps to get 
possession of his son, which lead to a long legal battle, rather 
disastrous and humiliating to Job. When the family moved to 
Roxbury, Hopestill went also, and later went to Mendon. In 
1671 he shared in the land division of Mendon ; the next year 
he drew "Lot 30" in a swamp land division; in 1673 he was 
" surveyor of highways." In 1675 when the inhabitants fled 
from the Indian raid he went to his old home in Roxbury, for 
his child Martha (" Mathew " in records and will) was bap- 
tized there, and the next year his son John was bom there. By 
1681 he is at Andover, as children are recorded there. His 
name is on the church list there of 1686. He was the first 
Tyler citizen in the newly settled part of Andover, in the south 
part of the town, and in 1687, by permission, he " set up a shop 
in ye streete near his house." This was on the Boston road 
near the inn of Joseph Parker, who buys of Hopestill in 1710. 
He also owned the " Devil's Den," as well as the great frog- 
ponds. He was again made freeman in 1691 ; also chosen 
tythingman. In 1692 the terrible scourge of witchcraft touched 
his home ; his wife was accused and imprisoned, but was finally 
released. 

STORY OF MARY TYLER'S CONFESSION 

The following is a digest of the " recantation " obtained 
from Hopestill Tyler's wife by the Rev. Increase Mather, the 
same being followed by Bailey's Sketches of Andover, pp. 222 
and 223. 

" Goodwife Tyler did say, that when she was first appre- 
hended, she had no fears upon her, & did think, that nothing 
could have made her confess against herself. But, since, she 
has found to her great grief, that she had wronged the truth 
& falsely accused herself." When she was being taken from 



Second Genekation 27 

her home in Andover to prison in Salem, her brother-in-law 
Bridges rode beside her; and, during the memorable ride, told 
her that she must be a "witch," because the afflicted were 
raised out of their fits " by her touch." She stoutly denied the 
accusation, and begged him not to urge her to confess. But, 
arrived at Salem (shall we not rather say, temporary " Pande- 
monium".?), she had to combat, not only a stubbornly mis- 
guided brother on one side, but also on her other side, " John 
Emerson " ; which latter stoutly took up the cudgel of accusa- 
tion, on calling her a witch, declaring he could see the Devil he- 
fore her eyes, whereupon, with his hands, he proceeded to beat 
him off. In short, her persecutors so harassed her for confession, 
that she would have "preferred a dungeon," to their presence. 
Finally, they threatened to leave her; declaring that, in such 
event, she would he undone hody and soul forever. To their 
reiterations, that she " could not lie by confessing," she retorted, 
" I shall he, if I confess ; and then, who shall answer unto God 
for my he?" Their final resort always was, "You will be 
hanged, if you do not confess ! " In short, they so protracted 
their unmerciful treatment, that the poor woman began to 
doubt her very hfe and reason : whereupon they proceed to have 
her " agree to say " what they should " suggest." But, in 
her real " confession " to Rev. Mather, she insisted, " she 
wronged her conscience in so doing, was guilty of a great sin 
in belying herself & desired to mourn for it so long as she 
lived." And the said Mather adds, " Her affliction, sor- 
row, relenting, grief and mourning, exceeds any pen to describe 
and express the same." 

VERDICT ON MARY TYLER 

MARY TYLER wife of Hopestill Tyler of Andover, Black- 
smith, being Indicted by the Jurors for o"" Soveraigne Lord and 
Lady the King and Queen upon these Oaths, try these Severall 
Indictments. That is to say ; 1st — For that shee the said Mary 
Tyler wife of Hopestill Tyler of Andover in the County of 
Essex, Blacksmith, about seaven Years since in the Town of 
Andover aforesaid wickedly Malitiously and ffeloniously a 
covenant with the Devill did make and signed the Devills Book, 
and promised to serve the Devill as long as she lived &c. &c. The 
Jury went out to agree on their verdict, who returning did then 



28 The Descendants of Job Tyleu 

and there in open Court deliver their Verdict. That the said 
Mary Tyler was Not Guilty of the ffellony by witchcraft for 
which shee stood Indicted in & by the said Indictments, and 
each of them. The Court ordered Mary Tyler aforesaid to be 
discharged paying her ffees. 

His daughters Hannah, Martha and Joanna were likewise 
accused, and their father and their uncle, John Bridges, gave 
a bond for surety in the sum of £100 for the appearance of 
Martha and Joanna. In Nevin's " Witchcraft in 1692," in 
Appendix A appears the name of " Hope Tyler " in the list of 
the accused, but the author found no details of any proceedings 
in such cause. In all there were eleven of the Tyler name and 
blood who were accused and taken out of their homes. They 
were all acquitted. Whether the witchcraft episodes had any- 
thing to do with it or not, there is nothing to show, but after 
a few years Hopestill moved to Preston, Conn. In 1697 he 
sold his land and house at Andover, and in Connecticut, for 
generations, his descendants grew rapidly in numbers and pres- 
tige. He is one of twelve men who organized the first church in 
Preston, November 16, 1698. It is believed that he went to 
Preston the preceding summer. He built his house in the forest, 
about a mile from the hamlet, and the primitive stone-fireplace 
was standing a few years ago, strong and massive, where an 
8-foot log could be rolled in. The old well exists, and the same 
old rocks, doubtless, for it is a rocky region, and Hopestill must 
have gained his competence more by blacksmith work than by 
farming. The old andirons, which were probably his handi- 
work, more than two hundred years ago, are heavy, with a ring 
in the top, fashioned wholly of iron, burned and rusty; this 
hearth, preserved so long, is the earliest one that can be indubi- 
tably proved to be connected with the descendants of Job Tyler 
of Andover. The fireplace is boarded up and never used. The 
house, for the most part, is said to have been burned a great 
many years ago. The chimney bears a date, 1768, and it is 
said to be nearly a reproduction of its protoype. The deed 
of this farm of one hundred and ten acres was given by Robert 
Gear to Hopestill under date of June 28, 1715. He was some- 
thing of a landlord ; became a purchaser of " Common lands " 
and he continued to own lands in Massachusetts for some years. 
While yet in Andover, he had granted to his brother Samuel 



Second Generation 29 

(then of "Rowley Village"), for £30, a 15-acre house lot in 
Mendon, five of which had come from his " father Tyler." 
And it also seems, that he had early made purchase in Preston ; 
for we find deed to " Hope " from Samuel Mason, January 10, 
1689. In 1703, he deeded land in Groton, Conn., to his son 
Daniel, whereupon is situated a place long known as " Tyler 
Hill." In 1706, he deeds a piece to his son James ; and in 
1713, another to son Hopestill, Jr. He seems to have retained 
interests in Massachusetts, after his departure ; for we find, at 
Salem, two deeds, from him in the years 1710 and 1713. June 
20, 1704, he had a deed in Connecticut from Thomas Averill; 
June 28, 1715, another from his son-in-law, Robert Geer. 
The inventory of his estate amounted to over £842. He pos- 
sessed a " Close-bodied coat," which with " beaver hat " and 
" muff " must have made him both comfortable and styhsh for 
his day. He also had an " orange cloak." His life, in an 
unusual degree, seems to have been removed from the realm of 
the commonplace, he having, for various reasons, lived in four 
towns, and having passed through the horrors of Indian raids 
and the terrors of the witchcraft delusion, which attacked those 
nearest and dearest to him. His will, dated May 15, 1728, was 
recorded in New London, Conn., August 9, 1734 (See Wills, 
Book VI, Folios 155-156). Of the children whose birthplaces 
are known, the second and those after the fifth were bom in 
Andover.

8 DEACON JOHN^ TYLER (JOB^), born in Andover, 
Mass., April 16, 1653; baptized in Roxbury, Mass., June 4, 
1665, in John Eliot's church; diedl May 4, 1742, in Mendon, 
Mass. ; buried there with stone still standing; married, Septem- 
ber 14, 1682, Hannah Parker, bom in Andover May 14, 1659; 
daughter of Nathan Parker and his second wife, Mary ; her 
father was early in Newbury, and in Andover by 1645. He 
doubtless spent some years of his youth in Mendon with his 
father, with whom he must have fled at the outbreak of King 
Philip's War to Rowley Village, and later went to Andover. 
He and his wife became members of the first church of An- 
dover, where they appear upon the list of 1686, though the 
exact year of their first communion is not recorded. With his 
elder brother Hopestill, and his brother-in-law, John Bridges, 



Second Genekation 33 

he became a " freeman," April 18, 1691. Between the births 
of his two children, Bethia and Mary, he moved to Mendon, 
and in 1693 he and his wife joining, made a conveyance to 
John Marston. 

In 1695, he first appears at Mendon upon the minister's rate, 
" £00.10.7, county pay, and £00.02.10, money." March 7, 
16'98» the town voted " to grant a Streame for the Incoradg- 
ment of a Com Mill within the bounds of the town," and John 
Tiler was on the committee " to view the streams and pich upon 
a place for that purpose, and make Return of ye same." In 
1699, he shares in a division of proprietor's land, and pays on 
minister's rate, " £01.00.06 and 6 ft. of wood." March S, 1701, 
he was on the committee to give the selectmen instructions. 
March 17, 1701, a schedule of claims presented, and John Tyler 
on committee, " to goe about the town and Take a valuation 
and bring it to the selectmen In order to ther making of the 
towne Rate." In 1702, he was elected selectman. In 1704, his 
rate on payment of town debts was " £00.04.10," and he 
received for his charge against town, £00.05.08." In 1708, he 
was one of three trustees, to take town valuation. In 1709, he 
was again a selectman ; and " Jan. 8 " of that year, when the 
town voted to put up their first school-house, he was upon the 
building committee. In 1712, he put in a bill to the town, 
" for 4 days about ye Ministry and Scool lots, . . . £00.10.00." 
In 1711, there had been a committee of nine chosen, to see 
about seating the meetings ; but as their labors did not seem 
to give satisfaction, in 1713, we see that Deacon (John) Tyler 
(with two other deacons) are made a committee, to see if better 
arrangements cannot be made for seating the meeting house. 
In the same year, " November 23," he is authorized to take 
from the town treasury money to pay the preacher for the 
past two weeks, " and. If sd. money comes In by Contrybu- 
tion, within one month, then to Return the same to the Treas- 
urer, otherwise to be made up by the towne." March 28, 1715, 
Deacon Tyler was on a committee, " to take care to provide a 
Minister [to succeed Rev. Rawson], for the Town, from time 
to time, until they shall provide a man, so far to the Town's 
acceptance, as to give a call to settlement." February 24, 
1716, he is on the committee, to agree with Rev. Joseph Don- 
to be the minister in Mendon. In the " Seventh division " of 
land, in 1719, his lot drawn is No. 110. 



34 The Descendants of Job Tyl,eb. 

From this time, as he was getting to be an old man, we do 
not hear so much of him through the records ; his sons John, 
Jr. and Nathan, come in ; especially the latter, who was prob- 
ably the most ubiquitous of any Tyler who ever lived in the 
town. In March, 1729, old Deacon Tyler (and the town 
clerk), with characteristic independence (though nearly four 
score), "protests against irregularities in the choice of town 
officers " ; and the same year, in December, enters protest 
against the committee " for stating the place for the Meeting 
House." The very last we hear of him, is the following season, 
from which time he appears to have retired to private life, not, 
however, without a word of warning to such as shall follow 
after: for we see " February 15, 1730," when it was decided to 
build a new meeting-house, at the request of John Tyler and 
others, it was put to vote, " whether the town should repair the 
old Meeting-House, or the town be divided," it being decided 
in the negative. Whereupon, Deacon John, and his sons, John, 
Jr., Nathan, Robert and Joseph Tyler, entered a protest. 

It is recorded at Mendon that Deacon John Tyler " died of 
Jandows, i May, 1742, aged 90 years," and the place of his 
interment is yet to be seen, marked by a fine slate slab. We 
find no probate of his estate; probably, hke his father, he set- 
tled his earthly possessions while living. For we find (Boston 
Deeds, Bk. 45, p. 148), December 15, 1712, his deed to his son 
Nathan Tyler (acknowledged, September 18, 1713, and re- 
corded March 4, 1730), conveying the " contents of a two acre 
right," with a two acre right in all future divisions and town 
commonage. Also, " 13 Jan. 1723/24 " (Boston Deeds, Bk. 
38, p. 103), John Tyler, So., of Mendon, grants " the one full 
& equal second part (the whole into two parts to be divided) 
of my Homestead whereupon I now dwell, with the one half of 
the edifices & buildings thereon erected . . . bounded as 
Mendon records will fully demonstrate," &c., to his " well be- 
loved " son, Joseph Tyler. 

The four elder children were bom in Andover; the others in 
Mendon. 

Children : 
48 John Tyler, born Aug. 16, 1684; died apparently unmar- 
ried, 1753. He lived in Mendon, where he shared in 
the " 7th Division Lots," being No. 23 in 1719 ; was 
constable in 1728; was chosen in 1744 with one other

to care for the "Preservation of ye Deer"; the in- 
ventory of his estate was dated May 28, 1753, show- 
ing real estate, £144.13.4, and the property was di- 
vided among his brothers and sisters and heir of 
Bethia. Nathan was administrator.

when her interest in her brother John's estate was 
awarded her "only heir"; married, Oct. 13, 1732, 
Daniel Hazeltine, of Mendon. 

9 SAMUEL^ TYLER (Jobi), ("husbandman"), bom, 
in Andover, Mass., May 24, 1655; baptized in John Eliot's: 
church in Roxbury, Mass., June 4, 1665; died December 17, 

1695, in Mendon, Mass.; buried there; married Hannah . 

" Samuel Tiler's " name is found on the Hst of those " im- 
pressed " at Rowley, November 29, 1675 (at the age of 20.) 
He appears to have been assigned to Major Appleton's com- 
mand, which, under the commander-in-chief. Governor Winslow, 
of Plymouth, the following month set out from Dedham, on 
the Narragansett Expedition. A detailed account of the en- 
suing conflict may be found in many histories. Two of the 
reported slain, bore the name of " Samuel Taylor," one being 
credited to Ipswich, the other to Rowley. It is an undoubted 
fact (as suggested by Mr. Bodge in his excellent Soldiers in 
King Philip's War), that this "Samuel Taylor of Rowley," 
reported " slayne," was in reality Samuel Tiler of Rowley. And 
it is also quite clear, that Samuel Tiler must have been wounded 
in that bitter fight, and left behind; and so, later, reported 
dead. This is further made probable from his subsequent early 
death at forty years, while his three brothers all lived to be 
over eighty years old, as did his father. His descendants had 
a marked military tendency : — one son of two was a captain ; 
of his grandsons, one was a lieutenant, one a captain and one 
a major-general; among the greatgrandsons, were one cap- 
tain, one major and one colonel; besides several, meanwhile, in 



36 The Descendants of Job Tyuebi 

the humbler " private " ranks. Few families, in proportion 
to numbers, make as honorable showing. 

Bodge (p. 155), further enlightens us, that " Samuel Tiler " 
was " credited, March 24, 1675/6 . . . £03.07.08." In 
accordance with the Governor's proclamation, made prior to 
the fight, that, " if they took the fort and drove out the In- 
dians from Narragansett," the soldiers should have " a gra- 
tuity of land," as well as wages ; we find, in 1728, under " Nar- 
raganset Township No. 3, Souhegan West, now Amherst, New 
Hampshire," that " Samuel Tyler," of Andover, through his 
" son, Ebenezer," plants a successful " claim " : though the 
land is " drawn " by James Parker (presumably, the legally 
qualified grantee.)* 

Samuel, in all probability, had been with his father at Men- 
don, when its settlers were driven away, at the very outbreak 
of Philip's War ; and the fact, that so soon after he is " im- 
pressed from Rowley," lends strong coloring to the supposition, 
that Job Tyler repaired thither, rather than to Roxbury: es- 
pecially, is this tentative supposition, when we notice the very 
next recorded item of Job, comes in 1680 at Rowley. The fact 
that Samuel, in his land drawing, is credited with service from 
" Andover," may lend some basis for assuming that he was 
living there some time after returning from Philip's War; 
but in 1682, he was still of " Rowley Village," when, for £30 
and a swine, his brother Hope deeded him his fifteen-acre house 
lot at Mendon, his future home; where, February 9, 1691, for 
£10, he has from Angel Torry of Mendon, twenty more local 
acres, upon " Muddie Brooke." In 1685 he paid his first minis- 
ter's rate there, 16s. Old. ; and not far from this date, un- 
doubtedly took up his homestead, located about a mile south 
of the present Mendon Center Village. From that time down 
to about 1830 (the approximate departure of Deacon Nathan 
Tyler, last of the line in the place), the family " Were all promi- 
nent in church and town aff"airs." Samuel Tyler was chosen sur- 
veyor of highways, " 3 Jan. 1686," constable, " 2 Jan. 1687," 
and again, " 24 Jan. 1689." On Rev. Mr. Rawson's salary 

* Massachusetts (from first to last) found it necessary to make no 
less than seven Narragansett "Township Grants," whose names are here 
given, in order: — Buxton, Me., Westminster, Mass., Amherst, N. H., 
Greenwich, Mass., Bedford, N. H., Templeton, Mass., and Gorham, Me. 
Connecticut likewise granted her heroes a single township, which took the 
name (I suppose, for obvious reason) " Voluntown."

rate, October, 1688/89, we find " No. 33 Job & Sam Tiler 
• . . f01.s.l4.d.04f." On a similar rate for 1691, we see 
"No. 24 Job Tiler & Samuel . . . £01.s.l8.d.00." In 
1693, Samuel was " tything-man " (the first year the town 
seems to have elected one.) In 1695, the town, as usual, made 
two semi-annual rates for the minister; Samuel Tiler's pro- 
portion was "county pay" (i. e., in produce), "£00.13.03 
. . . Money, £00.03.08." That year, "17 Dec. 1695," 
came his untimely end. His sincerely sorrowing fellow-citizens 
bore their young fellow-townsman, shrouded in his plain board 
coffin, upon their brawny shoulders to the old " Center bury- 
ing-ground." 

A mortgage, in which he was interested, is recorded at East 
Cambridge, Mass., in Vol. 11, p. 148, bearing date, September 
29, 1692, in the sum of £60, payable twelve years afterwards, 
with interest at £3.10 annually, given by Joseph Wilson and 
wife, Dorcas, of Maiden, being secured upon eight acres of 
land, house and orchard. It was " discharged " by Samuel's 
widow, Hannah, September 27, 1704. Two other deeds at 
Taunton. 

Perhaps, like many other Tylers, he died suddenly, for he 
left no will ; " Letters " in his estate being granted the widow, 
April 9, 1696, upon which date was filed inventory of his 
property, "£243.10," Boston, Mass., Probate Booh II, pp. 
149, 150. 

His widow, Hannah, then of " Rehoboth," October 9, 1704, 
had a mortgage, in the sum of £12.6.8, from Joseph Tree, of 
Attleboro ; which her son Ebenezer, June 19, 1710, " dis« 
charged." (Taunton Deeds, Bk. 5, p. 149.)

(now West Boxford), February 16, 1667; died October 11, 
1732; married, January 3, 1694, Ruth Perley, of Ipswich; 
bom 1676; died in Andover, May 10, 1738, but was buried 
with her husband in Rowley. It is stated in the History of 
Boxford that he moved just within the bounds of Andover 
about 1698, but in 1703 he is constable in Rowley. His name 
is on the 1711 Rowley tax Hst ; in 1714 his " Province tax " 
was "£1.9.3"; he is on the preacher's rate of 1720; in 1722 
his " Province tax " is " f 0.18.8 " and " Minister's rate, 
£0.15.7.", while in 1726, it is, respectively, " £3.8.11 " and 
"£1.4.5." In 1728 he is selectman there. In 1723, with his 
brother Jacob, he deeds (recorded 1725, Salem, Bk. 45, p. 
98), from "Andover," John Johnson, Jr., for £15, 1/4 of a 
saw-miU, on a river, " alias brook, called Cachechorrick " — 1/4 
part of the iron-work — 1/4 part wooden work — 1/4 part 
utensils — 1/4 part stream — 1/4 part woodyard — 1/4 part 
upper dam — 1/4 part ditch from dam to mill for course of 
water. In 1736, upon the first incorporation of the second 
church in (West) Boxford, his widow and eldest daughter, 
Sarah (Porter) , were among the " admitted," having requested 
" dismission " from the First church.

married, November 14, 1695, Annie Messenger, of Boston; bom 
about 1676; died February 11, 1745. He enlisted and served 
for five months in King William's War, in 1688, and he was 
the second of Job's descendants to bear arms, but he is believed 

40 



Third Generation 41 

to have acquired his title of Captain as Master Mariner on 
a merchant ship, and is said to have spent twenty years on the 
ocean. He lived for a time after his marriage in Charlestown, 
where the birth of his eldest child is recorded. Not long after, 
however, he returned to his native place; for we find a deed, of 
date March 1, 1702/3^» from Ephraim Foster, of Andover, 
blacksmith, in consideration of £70 in silver, paid by " Mr. 
John Tiler, living in Boxford, Mariner," conveying a house and 
land in Boxford, upland and swamp ground, and further 
" one third part of the great swamp * * pond meadow 
* * little meadow & * * great meadow," being 1/3 of 
the right therein of Robert Earns, Sr., purchased of Jacob 
Eams, who had it from his father's estate. 

We also find deed to John Tyler, from his father, Moses, 
dated May 20, 1708 (acknowledged, June 7, 1712; rec. March 
1, 1726), conveying 107 acres of Boxford land, "one line 
running to a Tree in Andover line, about 50 rods from the great 
Hill End, then to Run Easterly upon sd. line till it meets with 
Ephraim Fosters Land or line, which is part of the 400 acres 
of land which was laid out by the Town of Rowley to John 
Commins, Thomas Dorman & Robert Stiles." His home, now 
known as the " Captain John Tyler place," in Boxford, is 
the most ancient family seat of the Tylers thus far identified 
in Essex County, (Mass.), the old home of immigrant Job, 
1640. Job's house must have been among the first built in 
North Andover (he mortgaged his " house and bam " in 
" 1650," and land " fenced and unfenced,") but has not been 
located, and may never be. 

The eldest son of Job, " Quartermaster " Moses, settled upon 
the " Captain John " place (where father Job probably passed 
some later years of his life), and was thus one of the first set- 
tlers of West Boxford (contiguous to northerly North An- 
dover.) The house at present standing (that is, the rear part) 
was built by Moses' son, Captain John Tyler, probably about 
the time of Moses' death, 1727. Some " bricks " have re- 
cently been found buried in the present driveway, which would 
appear to locate the old fireplace of Moses at a few rods to 
the east of the present dwelling: and it is not at all unlikely, 
that when the first house was abandoned for purposes of living, 
it continued to be used as a storehouse, until it finally passed 
ofF the scene in decay. It must have been a very simple struc- 



42 The Descendants of Job Tylebj 

ture, judging from reports of the typical first settler's cabin. 
Of the many Tylers who have lived in this dear old home, 
none has left a memory more quaintly attractive than " Aunt 
Prue," who was herein bom, where she passed away at the re- 
markable age of 100. She was to have been wed in younger 
days, and the visitor is shown a Bible, the gift of her be- 
trothed ; though she did not marry him, nor did she pine away, 
one may easily see how dear he was in memory — very unusual 
memory of a love affair that could survive through more than 
the divinely allotted " three score and ten." Captain John's 
will provided a room for her " on the lower floor " of his house ; 
she had kept house for him, after his wife died in 1745, until 
he himself left eleven years later. Gideon, who succeeded Cap- 
tain John, also died four years before " Aunt Prue." She is 
buried near by, in the old West Boxford cemetery. Let all 
Tylers who pass this mound think kindly benediction towards 
a faithful kinswoman, who longer than any other was familiar 
to these beloved accustomed paths and haunts. 

The present imposing country house is due to the kindly 
eflForts of Gideon Tyler, son of Captain John, who succeeded 
to the premises upon his father's death. The presence of three 
chimneys (very unusual in so old a dwelling) is accounted for 
by this interesting bit of history: Gideon had two daughters, 
Mehitable and Anna (commonly called " Hitty " and 
" Nanny"), who died aged spinsters, both in September, 18'33, 
at eighty-four and eighty, respectively. Gideon (with a pa- 
ternal kindness worthy of later day imitation), built for these 
the west ell, with a single room upstairs and down, where for 
long years, in well-ordered privacy, they lived comfortably and 
happily. Upon their deaths, the rooms were closed, and have 
ever since remained unoccupied. 

Captain John's " rear rooms " are very well preserved and 
quaint, being quite low-posted, with heavy beams exposed to 
view, and the poem of a cozy fire-place, identical line for line 
with " The days of auld lang syne." In the front room, too, 
is a time-honored hearthstone, wherefrom rises the flames of 
domestic joys upon inclement days. 

When in 1800 Gideon died, his eldest son, John, fell heir to 
the old place; upon whose demise, in 1823, his daughters, Me- 
hitable and Mercy, succeeded to possession. Mercy lived to so 
recently as 1880, " singly " to her eighty-seventh year. Me- 



Third Generation 43 

hitaWe survived until 1891, aged ninety-three. Her husband 
was Captain Enoch Wood (descendant of an ancient Essex 
County family), who left (among, others) a daughter, Rebecca 
Tyler Wood, and a son, John Tyler Wood, born in 1830 and 
1831 respectively, who carry on the premises in the old God- 
fearing way. Having no living descendants, who shall inherit 
the old landmark when they shall have gone to their long rest.? 
(Written in 1896). 

Captain John appears on the Boxford tax list of 1711 ; and 
in 1714 was Selectman, as well as " Constable to gather the 
Province Tax," wherein his portion was £1.4.6. By 172^ his 
" Province Tax " had risen to £9.15.10, and his minister's rate 
the same year was £1.4.6. Evidently he was prospering! 
In 17S6 his town tax was £2.2.11, and minister's rate, £1.3.4. 
In 1735, upon the formation of the Second parish, he was 
elected its first treasurer; and May 1, 1737, on dismission from 
the First church, became, with his wife, a member of the Second 
church. In September, 1745, with others, he was suspended 
from " ye special privileges of Sacred fellowship & Com- 
munion," for " receiving into their houses Itinerant Preachers 
& holding meetings in opposition to ye repeated entreaties of 
their Brethren," &c. ; but, April 9, 1747, he made " Confession 
& acknowledgment," and was reinstated. He appears, like his 
father, to have been a member of the North Andover church, 
from records of his " rates " there in 1745, 1747 and 1749. 

His will was probated in Salem, Mass., July 12, 1756, Case 

28438. 

The second (as well as the eldest child) was probably bom 
in Charlestown ; the others in Boxford, on the old home-place.

Third Generation 45 

14. J0B3 TYLER (Moses^), born in Rowley Village, 
Mass., December 16, 1675; died in Rowley, Mass., in 1754; 
married (1), Margaret Bradstreet, born in Andover, Mass., 
February 19, 1674; died before 1736; daughter of Colonel 
Dudley Bradstreet and his wife Ann (Wood) Price Bradstreet, 
(the widow of Theodore Price) ; grand-daughter of Governor 
Simon Bradstreet of Massachusetts Bay colony and his wife, 
Anne (Dudley) Bradstreet; married (2), June 1, 1736, Pris- 
cilla Peabody, of Boxford, Mass. ; she then eighteen years of 
age and he sixty-one; she died s. p. ; married (3), September 11, 
1747, Mrs. Mary Brockelbank, who died in 1755. All his 
children were by the first marriage, and it is fitting to speak of 
the grandmother of Mrs. Margaret Bradstreet Tyler, the 
gifted Anne Dudley Bradstreet. Reared amid the refinement 
and elegances of an English castle (her father, Governor 
Thomas Dudley had been steward to the Earl of Lincoln), at 
the age of eighteen, she came with her husband, Simon Brad- 
street, to seek a home in the wilderness of North America. 
She is reputed to be the first American poetess. In Andover, 
in the Bradstreet House, built about 1667 by Governor Brad- 
street, were bom her last three of eight children. This house 
has a massive frame of heavy timbers, its walls lined with 
brick; its enormous chimney, running up through the center, 
shows in the garret like a fortification, and might, with care, 
last another half century. Among her descendants may be 
named WiUiam EUery Channing, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Wen- 
dell Phillips and Richard Henry Dana. Here was born about 
the year 1648, her son Colonel Dudley Bradstreet, who lived 
to the great age of ninety-four. He was the first person to 
breast and mark a turning point to the dreadful delusion of 
witchcraft. His only living descendants are those tracing 
through the children of his daughter Margaret and her hus- 
band Job Tyler. This history will show how pertinaciously 
the names Bradstreet and Dudley have clung as " given " 
names to the descendants of " Margaret and Job." Among 
the descendants of their son, William Tyler, is the author of 
this volume. Job Tyler was administrator of the goods not 
previously acted upon by former administrators of his father- 
in-law. Colonel Dudley Bradstreet. (See Salem Probate Rec- 
ords, Case No. 3068.) He gave bonds in the sum of £400. 
In 1708 Job Tyler had given a receipt to the previous adminis- 



46 The Descendants of Job Tylehj 

trator for £800, being " in part of what is due to me the Sub- 
scriber from said estate." In 1709 he gave a receipt for 
£26, " pr order from Madom bradstreet Relick widdow of the 
said Collonll Dudley bradstreet in part of what was allowed 
to her by the Judge of probate in the settlement of Said Es- 
tate." In 1706 he was constable of the recently erected munici- 
pality of Boxford; selectman in 1716 and in 1744, and served 
on town and church committees. April 25, 1732, he became one 
of a committee " to renew the bounds between Boxford & 
Andover " ; and, in 17'35, was on the committee of three to 
oversee and manage the building of the Second (J. e. original 
West Boxford) church. His will was dated April 26, 1754 and 
probated December 16, 1754. He lived in Rowley, now George- 
town, and he made numerous land grants.

17 JONATHAN^ TYLER (Moses^), born in Rowley 
Village, Mass., March 8, 1683; married, June 14, 1708, Phoebe 
Chandler, of Andover. He is on the Boxford tax-list of 1711 ; 
in 1714, his " Province tax " was £0.16.10 ; 1720, on minister's 
rate; 1722 was Constable to collect Province tax, his share 
being £0.13.12, with minister's rate, £00.11.11 ; 1726, his town 
tax was £1.15.11, minister's rate, £0.12.4. In 1725, he rose to 
the dignity of selectman. 1712 shows a deed from his father, 
" for love of my son Jonathan, carpenter, of Boxford," of 
eighty acres on north of Ipswich road, near Ebenezer Tyler's 
land, and that of his brother James, " Shaven Crown to Clay 
Pit Swamp," being one of its boundaries. The last record 
found {Mass. Archives, Vol. CV, p. 124), exhibits him as one 
of two petitioners for the town of Boxford, February, 1727. 
It had been a custom to cut lumber in New Hampshire on the 
Merrimac, and float it down the river to coast, where it was 
used for ship- timber; as it was often swept to sea, it involved 
great losses ; wherefore this petition to General Court, to 



Thied Geneeation 47 

erect a boom across, just above Haverhill, between Gage's and 
Griffin's ferries. This being done, we are inclined to think, 
Jonathan moved to Haverhill, and was a ship-" carpenter." 
No record of death or will, of self or wife, are found. Like 
his brother James, he might have gone into Maine, where the 
record loss by Portland fire,* leaves many a genealogical gap 
unspanned. His son Jonathan, as will be seen, went to Maine 
to settle. 

Children : 
93+ Jonathan Tyler, baptized in 1715. 
94 Phebe Tyler, married, June 3, 1736, Joseph Milliken; 

lived in Boxford, s. p. 
95+ Joseph Tyler, baptized in 1720. 

18 JAMES3 TYLER (Moses^), bom in Rowley Vil- 
lage, Mass., May 7, 1685; died in June, 1749; married (1), 
January 19, 1708, Mary (Green) Kimball, who died before 
1734; widow of Abraham Kimball and probably daughter of 
Isaac Green of Salisbury; married (2), before 1724, Phoebe 
Royall, daughter of John Royall, of North Yarmouth, Me., 
who was a son of William and Phoebe (Green) Royall, of 
Salem, Boston, and Dorchester, Mass. 

James Tyler was living in " Bradford," January 11, 1716, 
when he sells land in Cape Porpoise, (Me.), to Jabez Dorman ; 
also, December 14, 1716, when he has land of Nicholas Mooney ; 
also, February 14, 1717, when he has land of Ezra Rolfe. As 
no wife joins in 1716, she may have died; as she certainly had 
before 1724, when we find his second wife, " Phebe," joining in 
conveyances. 

By his Rolfe deed of 1716, he acquired land, meadow and 
marsh, between the Black Poynt River and Saco River, and 
about this time went to Maine.f Bradbury's History of Ken- 

*The great Are of Portland, Me., hurned all the Probates from 1760 
to 1866. As it was early the county seat of «. vast tract, much knowl- 
edge thus irreclaimably perished. 

tThe immigrant Royall had early grants in Maine; " Royall's Side," or 
"Royall's Neck," were named after him; also, "Royall's River," North 
Yarmouth. The above John Royall had a brother Joseph, whose daugh- 
ter, Sarah, in 1710, married William, son of Thomas Tyler of Boston. 
Thus we find " Royall " used as a Christian name in both the Boston and 
Andover Tyler lines. Ridlon's "Saco Valley" makes the mistake, of 
placing our James Tyler in the Boston Tyler line of descent. Bradbury's 
Hist. Kennebunkport, because of James' son Abraham, infers, that he 
came of the (extinct) line of Abraham Tyler of Haverhill. 



48 The Descendants of Job Tyler 

nebunhport dates his arrival there at about 1715, where he 
lived at " The Cape," just over the modem short causeway, on 
the right hand side, on ground in the present hands of the 
Grant family. The cellar of his removed house has been filled 
up in recent years ; it stood upon a little knoll, which ran 
down in the rear to water at high tide. Thereafter, for the 
sake of a mill-site, he removed to a rough wooded piece, near 
tidewater, some two miles distant, where he built a mill upon 
" Tyler's Brook " site. Not many rods distant, he built his 
log house ; nothing of which now remains, but some portions of 
a garden wall: the high rock to the rear of his home, which 
it sheltered from north winds, is still called " Tyler's Back." 

The Collections of the Maine Historical Soc, Vol. Ill, p. 
223, says, " James Tyler came from Cape Porpoise (Arundel) 
and settled on Blue Point in 1718." The Hist, of Kennehunk- 
port says (p. 281), he " changed his place of residence several 
times after 1720; but finally settled at Scarboro." (He cer- 
tainly was an active man, and not unlikely was at times forced 
to be so by the Indians : these broils made the entry and keep- 
ing of complete records impossible.) At the first legal meeting 
(after resettlement), held " Att Arondell, Ela Cape Porpus, 
on the 31 day of March 1719, being warned by order of a 
warrant from John Wheelwright, Esq., one of his Maj. Justus 
of the peac to meet and make choyce of town officers," 
" James Tyler and Allison Brown " (the latter soon to become 
a Tyler-intermarriage family), were chosen " haywards or 
field-drivers." At this meeting, was located " a highway of 
four rods wide from the western end of the persell of land " 
lately bought of " James Tyler " et al., " for to build a fort 
upon, which highway runeth down upon the back of the 
creek," &c., " near where the pound now standeth, and so," &c., 
" passes near to montagues neck so called." The third warrant 
for town meeting (being the first on record) is, " Arondell 
November, the 5th, 1719. The inhabitants of this tovra are 
to take notice that there is to be a town meeting on Wensday 
the eighteenth day Instant at ten of the clock in the morning at 
the house of Mr. James Tyler, to Rectifye and Reform some 
things that have been acted in said town," &c. At the " Nov. 
18, 1719 " meeting, is made a " grant unto James Tyler 60 
acres of Land anywhere that may be convenient on the Town 
Common (to be laid no way infringing on any former Grant)." 



Thib.d Genekation 49 

On town records, in 1719, 1720, are numerous entries of land 
laid out by " James Tyler, lot Layer for Arundell " ; March 
12, 1720, he had a further forty acre grant ; May 17, 1720, he 
appears as Land-surveyor; and, on 30th, same month, his 
name is one of the thirteen made " free Commoners." In 1728, 
he alienated to Samuel Preble, " for and in consideration of 
one Negro man " certain lands in Kennebunkport.* (This 
gives one much such a shock, as felt on viewing the " shelf " 
whereupon the old slave used to sleep in Wayside Inn, Sud- 
bury, Mass.) His name appears on a muster roll in Mass. 
Archives, under Captain Johnson Harmon, from February 28 — 
November 20, thirty-eight weeks, as " Centinel," (no residence 
given; being, probably, in 1721-22.) 

The date of his burial, June 8, 1749, is recorded at the 
Second (Dunston) church of Scarboro, where he was un- 
doubtedly buried; but patient search fails to find his (or any 
other Tyler) stone in the contiguous ground. His will, dated 
January 17, 1748, was probated July 3, 1749. (See " Yorh 
WiUs," p. 599.) Inventory, September 15, following, £1920,- 
0.3. It has long ceased to be a Tyler center, and the records 
are both meager and conflicting. The two elder children were 
born in Bradford, Mass., the others probably in Scarboro.

quiry what boat it was that " road dangerously out in the 
harbor," Tyler replied that the Master was sick, and had gone 
to Salem, and that he (Tyler) had brought her in and taken 
care of her. Upon being advised to go aboard, Tyler said, 
" she is safe enough." Upon proceedings in the case in 1724, 
" Sam Walton, of full age," testifies that " a Nov., 1719, he 
was on board the schooner called the Restoration, William 
Dove, Master, he being a passenger bound for Boston, but the 
boat being pushed into Marblehead by contrary winds, he 
heard the Captain order ' mate ' Joshua Tyler, as he was get- 
ting over the side, to go ashore, being very sick, to take care 
of the vessel, and, when the wind freshened, to ' veer out more 
cable ' and carry the other anchor. Mate replied, he would 
take all the care he could. It seems they were bound from 
North Carolina to Boston." From The American Weekly Mer- 
cury, May 5, 1720., From New Jersey Archives, First Ser. 
Vol. XI, newspaper extracts, page 49, we get another glimpse 
of the wanderer: "Custom House, Salem [N. J.] Apr. 23. 
Entered Inwards [by this time, he seems to have become a 
Captain], Joshua Tyler, sloop Dragon from Virginia." 

No record appears of the time and manner of death, which 
seems to have come at the age of forty-six; his estate being 
administered at Salem, May 14, 1735, Case No. 28,446. The 
children were born in Salem.

13, 1727, Abigail Foster, born November 22, 1697; died in 
Wobum, Mass., December 20, 1758; daughter of Jonathan and 
Abigail Foster ; she was in the fourth generation from Reginald 
Foster of Ipswich. In 1718 his father deeded him one-half of 
his arable land, meadow, orchard, west end of dwelling, one- 
half of cellar, one-half of stock and husbandry tools. The 
death of his wife and child may have upset his plans, for the 
following year, 1723, he, with his brother Moses disposed of 
his interest (one-fourth), in a mill and appurtenances upon 
" Cachechorrick " brook. In 1725, from June 24 to July 7 we 
find him a " trooper " on Captain Richard Kimball's muster 
roll (Mass. Archives.) In 1727, shortly after his second mar- 
riage, his father died, of whose estate he became executor. He 
inherited in 1727 from his father the remainder of the Andover 
homestead, where he continued to live until he removed to Wo- 
burn. In 1729 he deeded land to one Skales and in 1731 made 
a grant to Samuel Famum. Sometime after 1738, he removed 
to Wobum. His will, dated June 25, 1759, was probated June 
2, 1778 (East Cambridge Records, case 16,502.) Jacob, hav- 
ing had his portion, gets but £10. Abigail and Mary have each 
£36 in three annual installments, all the household goods and 
the privilege of the " east chamber " while they remain single, 
but if their brother Moses wishes to sell they are to relinquish 
it on receipt of £2 each. Moses has all the buildings and lands 
in Wobum, lands in Andover, with rights and interest in com- 
mon and undivided lands there ; also the stock, utensils, monies, 
etc. ; to act as executor and to pay the debts. The inventory 
was £1,851,4*. Jacob and his son, Jacob, Jr., were members of 
the Andover church, where their children were baptized and in 
whose old burial ground rest their wives and some of their 
children.

nums lived upon the original Tyler homestead in Mendon. 
This, as we have already seen. Job deeded, for £60, to his son 
Moses, in 1700; which, the following year, Moses to Famum, 
for £1 increase, then of Andover, but soon of Mendon; where 
in 1709, Ebenezer Tyler (son of Samuel, Job), for £40, deeds 
Famum most of the " 20 acre Smith's lot," quit-claiming at the

Maynard of Westboro, children of brother Daniel of Marlboro, 
deceased, and of brother Reuben of Westboro, deceased ; brother 
Hezekiah, executor. In 1710, March 6, the local records givp 
his entrance into a long and prominent public service, by mak 
ing him one of a committee of thirteen, appointed to see that 
swine were " yoked and wringed as the law directs." February 
16, 1716, he is mentioned as " Deacon," in connection with a 
committee to raise funds for ordination of Rev. Mr. Dorr. 
February 16, 1719, he shared in the " Seventh Devision " lots, 
as No. 143. May 17, 1721, he protested against the receiving 
of " Bills of Credit," which were, when redeemed, " to be burnt 
to ashes " ; but in 1728, he appeared on Mendon Board of 
Trustees, to manage its share (£270) of said Bills. In 1727, 
he presented a bill of 4s. against the town. In 1729, '33, '34, 
'38, '48, '50, he served as Selectman. In 1730, he was on 
committee, to treat with Uxbridge concerning the ministry and 
school laws ; and the same year, together with his father and 
brother Joseph, protested against building the meeting-house 

* By her father's (Samuel Read of Mendon), will, she had, in addition 
to former gifts, "all that my Land on both Sides of the great River up 
Stream of Woodland Thompson, lying in two parcels, with a five acre 
right in the Commons of Mendon from and after the Seventh Division, 
she paying the Sum of one hundred and fifty pounds to my Executors, in 
one year after my decease." 



Third Generation 61 

nearer the burying-ground than within twenty rods of the old 
meeting-house. In 1731, he, and others, were allowed 3/ each, 
for treating with Uxbridge committee about school lands. In 
1732, on committee " to finish that affair with Uxbridge about 
the school money, according to the former vote " ; and later 
on, made charge of 4/ for the same. The same year, on com- 
mittee to see the new meeting-house finished. In 1734, under 
the title of " Ensign " Nathan Tyler, was on a committee, one 
of whom was to assist the representative in the General Court, 
in the matter of the Hazelton petition for a new town: which, 
the following year, was formed, and called Upton, within whose 
bounds fell the farm of Nathan (which, nevertheless, remained 
a part of Mendon.) 

In 1738, Mendon voted £40, to let fish up Pawtucket Falls, 
and Captain Tyler was to look after the matter ; the same year, 
he was a grand-juryman. In 1740, on committee for preserva- 
tion of deer, pursuant to Chap. Ill, Sec. 4, Acts of 1739. In 
1741, his name is on petition to make Mill River a " precinct " 
of Mendon. In 1749 and 1751 he was on important com- 
mittees. In 1752, '53, '54, '55, he was representative to the 
General Court. In 1755, August 8 to November 5, was " En- 
sign " on Crown Point expedition, though at advanced age. 

From the foregoing, it is evident that we are treating of a 
very prominent citizen of early Mendon: his line, in truth, is 
the most prominent there of all the clan, and for a century 
and a half furnished descendants conspicuous in that munici- 
pality in civil, religious and military annals. He also was 
largely interested in lands. His will was dated August 25, 
1780, and probated May 27, 1783. (See Boston Deeds, Book 
xxxlx, p. 315.)

Mayflower. He lived at Mendon, Mass., until the incoropra- 
tion of Upton in 1735, when he appears to have become a 
citizen of that town. Doubtless his farm was in that portion 
of Mendon set off to Upton, as was Nathan Tyler's, but whose 
farm was allowed to " remain forever in the town of Mendon 
as heretofore." Robert was a selectman of Upton in 1740.

Averill, of Preston, Conn. ; married (2), May 26, 1746, Rachel 
Brabrook, of Concord, Mass. Records of him are fragmentary. 
July 6, 1717 (then 21 years old), he exchanged land with 
brother Nathan, 21 acres, etc. (which he likely had of his 
father's estate), for 33 acres and 53 rods of land. February 
16, 1719, he is No. 3'3 as sharer in the " Seventh Devision " 
of land in Mendon; and the same year, October 9 (Boston 
Deeds, Bk. XXXIV, p. 121) for £25, has from his kinsman 
Samuel Bridges, of Mendon, 30 acres in Mendon. June 3, 
1720, for £15, he conveys to brother Nathan 18 acres and 128 
rods of land in Mendon, between North Hill and West River. 
It is possible that he removed from Mendon to Connecticut, as 
his first wife was of that colony, and in 1721 he had a deed to 
one hundred acres in Ashford, Conn. At the time of his 
second marriage he was probably living in Upton, Mass. He 
may have been the sergeant David Tyler, recorded in the Mass. 
Archives, as having served under Captain Jeremiah Moulton, 
January 18 to May 11, 1725.

of meeting-house upon site selected, and without money on 
hand. From about 1733 to 1743 he seems to have been a 
resident of Sutton, Mass., where several of his children were 
bom. About 174'3 he removed to Uxbridge. His estate at 
Uxbridge consisted, in part, of a five-acre tan-yard and build- 
ings at the Center village, bought of William Adams in 1733, 
eighteen acres, then called "Egremony Swamp," now Capron's 
Pond, bought of John Famum, Sr., 1745 — and a farm of about 
150 acres, known in recent years as the Benjamin Tucker 
place. March 25, 1757, he is recorded in the Mass. Archives 
as a member of the train band and alarm list of Captain John 
Taft's " Second Foot Company." His will was dated Decem- 
ber 3, 1778, probated March 2, 1780. The eldest child was 
bom in Mendon, the next three in Sutton and the others in 
Uxbridge. 

Children, by first marriage:

56 EBENEZER3 TYLER (SamueP), born in Mendon, 
Mass., April 28, 1685 ; died in Attleboro, Mass., June 28, 1736 ; 
married about 1712, Catherine Bragg, born about 1690; died 
in Attleboro, November 9, 1763. He lost his father at ten, 
and went with his mother to live in Rehoboth, Mass., where 
he acts as her agent, in the discharge of a mortgage, in 1710. 
He deeds, January 13, 1709, to his cousin John Farnum, of 
Mendon, for £40 (Boston Deeds, Book 26, pages 2, 3), about 
20 acres in Mendon, they quit-claiming also the " Fifteen Acre 
Right, which he, the said John Famum, is now settled upon, 
formerly belonging to his grandfather, Job Tyler, late of said 



Thibd Generation 65 

Mendon, deceased," claimed by the heirs of Samuel, deceased, 
son of said Job. The same year, he had a grant of many 
hundreds of acres In Rehoboth, for £100, from Boston parties.. 
(Boston Deeds, Book 6, p. 108, 109, 110). In 1713, he is 
No. 66 on a division of Cedar Swamp land in Mendon, and 
in 1735 acquired 34«9 acres in Ashford, Conn. His gravestone 
is standing in the rear of the present First church edifice in 
Attleboro (showing much wear from the elements), which some 
kind descendant, in recent years, has put upon a substantial 
base together with those of his wife, his son John and wife and 
John's daughter Phoebe. The Tylers of this line were promi- 
nent in this church, now known as the Oldtown Congregational 
church of Attleboro, for over a century, and Ebenezer and his 
wife were undoubtedly members though its records prior to 
1740 have disappeared. The old Tyler homestead stood on 
present Locust street, about one and one-half miles south of 
Attleboro village ; it was burned. The date of his removal to 
Attleboro is unknown, but it was after 1711. His will was 
dated May 29, and probated August 9, 1736. He owned con> 
siderable land in Attleboro and at least, 650 acres in Ashford. 

ATTLEBOKO CEMETEEY 

Right in the center of the modem-built village lies the old 
burying-ground of ancient Attleboro, which, after the English 
custom, immediately environs the place of worship. Originally 
the meeting-house stood on what is called the common, be- 
tween which and the graveyard runs the railway. A minia- 
ture facsimile of the original Lord's house, a few feet in 
dimensions, stands by the side of the present edifice. The 
present burying plot is nearly triangular in shape, wherein 
lie the remains of many scions of the earliest settlers. Most 
of the stones are of comparatively recent date. Deacon Peter 
Thacher, one of the early church magnates, and his son Peter, 
Jr., with their wives and some of their descendants are here 
entombed. 

Ebenezer Tyler, son of Samuel, son of Job, the immigrant, 
with his wife, Katherine, their son Captain John, his wife, 
and maiden daughter Phebe, are side by side, with old stones 
raised onto a common base and their inset in modem renais- 
sance. The older stone showing considerable wear.

important early Tyler of the locality. In 1707 (aged but 12), 
he is on record as sharing, No. 9, in fifth division of Mendon 
lands ; probably, however, it is the estate of his father (also 
named "Samuel"). June 13, 1715, for £100, he acquired 
land of Matthew Short. His line is distinguished for its 
military vigor: all his three sons becoming Revolutionary 
veterans, one being a heutenant, and another major-general of 
miKtia; five of his grandsons also served in the Revolution, 
thus making eight all told, from this immediate family, of the 
ten Tylers furnished by the town to that cause.

tioned ; maiTied Lovet. " Abraham Leavitt," of Scar- 

boro, was doubtless her husband. James Tyler has it " Lovet " 
in his will ; therefore it may be the Andover and Mendon line, 
with previous Tyler intermarriages. It has changed (perma- 
nently) in Maine to " Leavitt," where the records are sadly 
lacking. Child :

FouBTH Generation 83 

Martha , probably of Gorham, Maine ; married (3), widow 

Sarah Jordan ; her maiden name was Grundy (she married [1] 
Libby ; married [2], Captain Jordan) ; married (4), Jan- 
uary 13, 1788, Mary Cumstock, who died in Saco, Maine, No- 
vember 7, 1839, aged 80. Captain Abraham and his wife 
Martha acknowledged the covenant at the Second church in 
Scarboro, September 25, 1763. On the 20th of January, 1803, 
he made the following deposition : " I, Abraham Tyler, ninety- 
three or ninety-four years, testify and do say that I came to 
live in Scarboro about seventy years ago." This statement 
would make his birth 1708 or 1709 instead of 1712, and the 
date of his first going to Scarboro, 1732. Southgate states 
that he went there in 1743 ; it has, however, usually been con- 
sidered that he lived in Andover, Mass., at the time of his 
father's death, in 1749, who speaks of him in his will as a " very 
undutiful son." At 19 he went with General Wolfe and 
fought on the Plains of Abraham. He received a bullet in 
the thigh which was cut out many years after. He was in 
the militia in Scarboro. When the news of the Battle of 
Lexington reached Falmouth Neck, Maine, before daylight, 
April 21, 1775, Abraham Tyler's company marched toward 
Boston, but at Welles, Maine, they were advised to remain and 
protect the towns on the seacoast, around Falmouth. He 
entered the service April 24, 1775, in Colonel Phinney's regi- 
ment; the council recommended that he be commissioned by 
General Washington in 1775. He was at the Battle of Bunker 
Hill and at the siege of Boston. He was in the army for three 
years with rank as captain. His journal gives an account of 
his movements In the war after the three years of his enhstment 
was out. He spent a long and useful life at Scarboro ;_ was 
deputy-sheriff of York County; part owner of the old mill at 
Saco, and the last person in charge of the ferry at Blue Pointy 
On the Portland, Maine, records from 1760 to 1870 (110 
years), are 22 pages of index to Tyler grants, amounting to 
877 entries. Of these, about 80 are under the head of Abra- 
ham senior, and Abraham junior. His name is on the Liming- 
ton petition to build a road, March 21, 1795. His children 
were born in Scarboro; they were baptized m the First and 
Second churches in that place, except the eldesl. His journal 
contains an account of his war experiences as foUows:

"A JOURNAL OF A. TYLER IN THE REVOLUTION- 
ARY WAR. 

" I joined the army at Boston, and was in the whole siege. 

" When the eighth month was out, I enlisted for one year. 
Then marched for Canida. My time was out the last day of 
December, 1776. Then I enhsted for three years under Capt. 
Silas Burbank in the Twelfth Massachusetts Regiment, Com- 
manded by Col. Samuel Bauer (Bruer). 

" Left the Army — Colo. Sprouts took command, all my 
officers are dead — ^both General and Field, Captains and 
Sebolton Officers — except Captain Mains, he was a Lieutenant 
— the year 1779. Promoted to a Capt in Sprouts Regiment 
and continued during the war. I received an honorable dis- 
charge some time in March 1780. Then in order to make up 
my losses, I thought I would try the sea. I shipped on Board 
of a 20 gun ship Capt Jeremiah O'Brien commander. This 
ship was named the Horrable — Built in Newburyport — out 
about thirty days, and was captured by two of the enemys' 
Frigates and then carried in to New York and put on board of 
the old ship Jersey and remained there three months — suffered 
everything but Death. I made my escape by swimming the 
second day of December, got on the Island betwixt the two 
channels at Hellgate, there we lie in Bushes all the next day. 
When it came night we began to walk around the Island to see 
what we could find. We found a field of com where this had 
been planted, and we hunted for the gleanings of the field and 
found some short nubins — and this we ate raw, and a sweet 
morsel it was to us — 9, of us only. Then we were at a stand 
how to make our escape. The enemy all around us — we hunted 
around the Island — found a rail fence and took them and made 
a small raft — got each of us a small paddle, which I made 
with my knife — then we shipped on board our raft and went 
through the whole British fleat that lay oposite the City of N. 
York, and got ashore after great effort on the Jersey side. I 
was in the siege of Boston. Then went to Canida in '76. Was 
in the defeat at Ticonderoga. In the Battle of Hubbardston — 
in both Battles taken Burgoine and at the storming of Stoney 
Points under Gen. Wayne. Then in the Battle of Monmouth. 
All this service I did naked and without pay."

139 GENERAL JOHN* TYLER (James^), bom in 
Preston, Conn, (now Griswold), December 29, 1721 ; died there 
July 29, 1804 ; married, December 14, 1742, Mary (Spalding 
or Spaulding) Coit, born in Plainfield, Conn., July 7, 1716; 
died November 11, 1801 ; daughter of Thomas and Mercy (or 
Mary) (Welch) Spalding (or Spaulding), and great-grand- 
daughter of Edward Spalding (or Spaulding), of Chelmsford, 
Mass., the first settler of the name in New England; widow of 
Joseph Coit, who died July 21, 1741 ; son of Rev. Joseph and 
Experience (Wheeler) Coit, of Plainfield ; by this marriage she 
had two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary. General Tyler's 
services in the Colonial and Revolutionary wars were varied. 
He was appointed lieutenant of the '3rd company or train 
band of the town of Preston, his commission being signed 
October 30, 1752, by Governor Roger Wolcott. In the cam- 
paigns of 1756, 1759, 1760 and 1764 he was successively ap- 
pointed lieutenant, captain-lieutenant, and captain in various 
companies and regiments which were raised to defend the 
country against the French and Indians. His commissions 
were signed by Governor Fitch. In the last campaign he was 
under Lieutenant-Colonel Israel Putnam. When the Revolu- 
tionary War broke out he was commissioned, May 1, 1775, as 
lieutenant-colonel of the 6th regiment, his commission being 
signed by Governor Jonathan Trumbull; he was also captain 
of the 2nd company, recmited from New London, Hartford 
and Middlesex counties. He remained on duty in New Lon-

don until June 17, 1775, when the troops were ordered to the 
Boston camp. In 1776, he was appointed colonel of the 10th 
regiment of the Continental army. After the siege of Boston, 
at which he was present in General Spencer's brigade, he went 
to New York with his regiment. He succeeded Gurdon Salton- 
stall as brigadier-general of the 3rd brigade of militia, June 
5, 1777, and served in that capacity in Rhode Island on state 
alarms under General Sullivan and engaged in the attempt to 
dislodge the British from Newport, in 1778, and was at the 
battle of Long Island, August 29, 1778. During the New 
Haven alarm in 1779, he commanded the militia along the east 
coast of New Haven, and during a part of that year was at 
New London and Groton. When the Revolutionary army was 
disbanded the soldiers could not get their pay, nor had they 
for a long time received any ; there is a tradition that General 
Tyler used his own money and paid off his soldiers. At the 
close of the war he returned to his old home in Preston (now 
Griswold), where his old house is still standing, in 1907. He 
lived for 21 years after the war. He began a career in the 
General Assembly of Connecticut at the age of 35, and served 
as follows: 1756, 1758, 1759, 1763, 1767, 1770, 1773, 
1774, 1775, 1783, 1787. He was also justice for five consecu- 
tive years following 1773, in and for the county of New Lon- 
don. General Tyler's tomb is in the old cemetery at Griswold, 
he having bought a right in the Wheeler and Coit tomb. The 
inventory of his estate was $20,220.81. His children were 
bom in North Preston. His will was dated April 25, 1798, and 
the codicil (after his wife's death), November 20, 1801. (See

interest in one-third of his lands. In 1756 he was a lieutenant 
at Fort William Henry, and also on the expedition to Crown 
Point, in that year. In 1758 and 1759 he was a captain of 
a company ; he is recorded as of the train band and was on the 
alarm list of Mendon in the same years. He was commissioned 
lieutenant-colonel of the 3d Worcester County regiment, June 
12, 1776, and commissioned as colonel of the same regiment, 
June 17, 1779. He engaged in service in Rhode Island at 
different times. He lived in Mendon until some time between 
the years 1763 and 1766, as the three elder children were bom 
there; the next three children were bom in Upton, Mass., and 
the two younger in Uxbridge. Here he seems to have bought 
the tanyard property of Joseph Tyler, in 1775, and settled 
in the town as its first lawyer. He was probably the first law- 
yer in the south part of the county. He appears to have been- 
a man of good standing in the community, but very little is 
known of his private life.

probably in Haverhill, Mass., July 6, 174<2; married Mercy 
Hackett, daughter of Henry Hackett, of New Gloucester; 
born December 10, 1743. They grant their interest in her 
father's estate, £6, June 13, 1775, to Moses Hackett of New 
Gloucester. Moses Hackett, as administrator of the estate of 
Jonathan Tyler, late of New Gloucester, July 11, 1783, deeds 
to James Rider, of North Yarmouth, for £99, 15s, 50 acres in 
New Gloucester. It is probable that the estate here adminis- 
tered upon was that of Jonathan". He had a grant of land 
from his father on the 20th of June, 1767, of 60 acres in 
New Gloucester, for which he paid £10, 13s, 4d. He enlisted 
in Captain Merrill's company. Colonel Phinney's regiment of 
Foot, May 15, 1775. {Coat Rolls 8 Months Service, Vol. 56.) 
In a letter to his wife, dated Boston, June 25, 1777, signed by 
himself, he states that he has been sick with the small pox, 
entered the hospital April 29 and left it June 18, 1777, and 
went to Boston. (Resolve, 1820, chap. 101.) (See also Books, 
Enlisted Men and Officers, Vol. 27.) The children were bom

369 NATHANIEL^ TYLER (Jonathan*), bora proba- 
bly in Haverhill, Mass., about 1744; died in 1809; married 
Rebecca Sherloc (probably Sherlock). 

The placing of this line is conjectural; no record of birth 



Fifth Geneuation 145 

found; names of children indicate descent from Moses* (Job^), 
in fact is the only possible line of descent my records will 
allow. From only two of Moses'* sons does it appear he could 
come, that is Joshua* and Jonathan^. In Joshua's line we 
have nothing to show he had Tyler grandsons, or that any of 
his hne went to Maine. It is probable that this line comes 
from Jonathan*, Moses*, Job^. We know that Jonathan*, like 
his brother James, went to Maine, and Jonathan* was at New 
Gloucester, Maine, by 1763, before the first proprietor's meet- 
ing down to 1773. Jonathan* was at Haverhill, Mass., in 
1743, where probably was born his son Jonathan^, 174S, and 
where NathanieP may have been born. It is but a short dis- 
tance from New Gloucester, Maine, to the Augusta, Maine, 
region where the children of Nathaniel largely settled. Two 
of Nathaniel's children went to Bethel, Maine, which is about 
as far northwest from New Gloucester as Augusta is to the 
northeast. Jonathan* had brothers : Nathaniel, Jonathan, 
Ebenezer and Joseph, and NathanieP gives four of his sons 
these same four names. The names of Nathaniel, Jonathan 
and Joseph recur in the names of the grandchildren of Nathan- 
ieP. Jonathan* had a brother Joshua, and this name appears 
among Nathaniel's grandchildren, while David and Asa, names 
also occurring in the seventh generation of Nathaniel's line, 
are names found among the grandchildren of Moses* (Job^), 
the father of Jonathan*. 

In 1775 we find the name of Nathaniel Tyler among five 
new names added to Augusta taxpayers, when General Arnold 
ascended the Kennebec to go to Quebec. In a return of men 
enlisted into the Continental Army, from Colonel Joseph 
North's Zd Lincoln County regiment, dated Gardnerstown, 
February 2, 1778, occurs the name of Nathaniel Tyler, from 
Hallowell, Maine, who enlisted for three years. In 1780 
Nathaniel Tyler was a soldier at Fort Halifax. " Nathaniel 
and wife Rebecker " join in a deed of land, February 4, 179'3, 
as shown in the Wiscasset Register of Deeds, Vol. 24, p. 18. 
In 1797 Nathaniel owned land, horses and cattle in Augusta. 
The eldest child was born in Sidney, Maine; the fifth, sixth 
and seventh children were bom in Augusta, Maine.

The Merrimack River, by J. W. Meader (1869) says: " In 
the navigation of the river and auxiliary canals, the family 
of Tylers bore an important and conspicuous part, and are 
historically connected with the river and with Lowell. Mr. 
Nathan Tjder owned nearly all the land from the head of the 
Pawtucket (or Navigation) Canal to the Merrimack, and as 
far down as the mouth of the Concord, the manufacturing 
companies making their first land purchase of him. . . ." 
He resided near the foot of Pawtucket Falls, and carried on 
a saw and grist mill ; which was swept away by the " Great 
Freshet " (1810). " For three generations the Tylers of Lowell 
have been intimately connected with the Merrimack and its 
canals ; in their younger days in the hvely times of East 
Chelmsford, as fishermen, lumbermen and boatmen; and in 
maturer years in many high positions of responsibility and 
trust. . . ." 

Mr. Nathan Tyler owned a large tract of land in Lowell, a 
part now covered by the Boot corporation, and the whole of 
that covered by the Massachusetts, Prescott and Middlesex 
as far south as Massic Falls on the Concord, with also a con- 
siderable territory on the west of Central Street, between 
Merrimac and Market Streets, a large and valuable part of 
which, covered by Tyler block, is still in the family. Nathan's 
house, subsequently the residence of Jonathan®, was on the 
north side of Merrimac Street between the canal and Bridge 
Street, and was built of lumber sawed at Tyler's mill below 
Pawtucket Falls. The family became widely separated and 
is now represented in Lowell by female members. " Tyler 
Park " contains abount 80,000 feet of land, with ample streets 
surrounding it. 

Ignatius Tyler was appointed administrator of his estate, 
and the inventory was $14,610.55, and was made December 8,

heretofore received." He granted to Benjamin Millikin, his 
wife "Rebeker" joining, December 5, 1804, a marsh on Dun- 
ston River, about 40 rods north of " Tyler's Bridge," called 
Goosebury Island. He had 20 acres from his father, October 
5, 1805, for $250, lying at " Tyler's Bridge," the right being 
reserved for Abraham's daughter Hannah, probably unmarried, 
to take wood for one fireplace, during her life. {Portland, 
Maine, Registry of Deeds, Books 22, 47 and 48.) His peculiar 
name doubtless comes from the fact that his father, in one of 
his numerous marriages, took one of the Jordan family as a 
wife, and his father had a business transaction with " Dominicus 
Jordan " at one time, from whence the name probably comes. 
The male line in this family threatens to become extinct.

the school was broken up on account of the contest- 
ing of Mr. Noyes' will, " The Instructor's School " 
was built for him, organized in 1830, on a Normal 
basis with a regular course of training. He had

ties entitled him to reach. His will was proved May

Neck " near Kelley's Bridge and also called " Tyler's Point," 
a narrow and short tongue of land bounded by tidewater, and 
reached by bridge from Barrington Center and by a second 
bridge from Warren. The old cemetery there, now neglected, 
contains three generations of Tylers, side by side. There stood 
the first Baptist church (erected in 1663), until 1700. In 
1778, when the British and Hessians invaded Warren and 
burned many buildings, Mr. Tyler was conspicuous in his 
efforts to prevent their invading Barrington. He prevented 
the landing of two Hessians, who came over in a boat, killing 
one, whose musket, 110 years old, was shown at the Centennial 
anniversary of the town. Mr. Tyler bequeathed the gun to 
his grandson, Sylvanus Haile Bowen. On the lock plate is 
stamped the English crown and the initials G. R. (Georgius 
Rex) and date, 1760. The Tyler homestead on "Tyler's

sonage. Mrs. Tyler was the heroine of the verses, 
" Mary Had a Little Lamb." When she was a child 
in Sterling a little new-bom lamb was found nearly 
dead, one day, and she nursed it back to life, sitting 
up all night to keep it alive. At her brother's sug- 
gestion they took the lamb to school, one day, hav- 
ing considerable trouble to get it over a high stone 
wall. They had high seats, boarded up, in the 
schoolroom, and Mary placed the lamb inside this 
enclosure, at her feet, on a shawl. When she went 
out to the place for recitation the clatter of little 
hoofs was heard on the floor, and the lamb appeared. 



194! The Descendants of Job Tyler 

The teacher laughed outright and the children gig- 
gled, but Mary was very much ashamed and led 
the lamb to a shed outside in the schooly9,rd, where 
it stayed until she went home. A young man named 
John Roulstone, visiting the school that day, was 
greatly pleased with the incident. The next day he 
brought three stanzas which he had written. Two 
stanzas have been added since then, by another 
hand. From the lamb's fleece, Mary's mother knit 
two pairs of stockings, which were kept until Mrs. 
Tyler was about 80 years of age. The ladies of 
Boston were then raising money for the preservation 
of the Old South Meeting-house, and Mrs. Tyler 
contributed these stockings, which were unraveled 
and small pieces of the yam sold, thus realizing a 
considerable sum from the pair of hose.

629 DEACON JOHN" TYLER (John*), born in Attle-

1822; married, June, 1768, Mercy Thacher, bom December 
27, 1752; died January 14, 1835; daughter of Rev. Peter 
and Bethiah (Carpenter) Thacher, of Attleboro ; descended 
from a long Hne of Rev. Peter Thachers, all eldest sons, inter- 
rupted only by Rev. Thomas Thacher, the famous first pastor 
of the Old South Church, Boston ; also a descendant of Thomas 
Hinckley, Governor of Plymouth Colony. 

Prof. W. S. Tyler says of her: "My grandmother Tyler 
was a very remarkable woman. For many years she was the 
chief physician of all the settlers in Susquehanna County. 
Mounting her horse astride with the doctor's saddlebags, she 
would ride fast as the fastest to meet an emergency — a confine- 
ment or any extreme sickness — in any part of the country. 
And so often did she ride from Harford to Ararat carrying on 
horseback all sorts of heavy luggage — a dye-tub, a big brass 
kettle, etc., etc. — that it became a common saying that ' she 
brought her loom on horseback, in her lap, with her grand^ 
daughter in it weaving.' (See History Susquehanna County, 
passim). And she could minister to the souls as well as the 
bodies of her patients, for her Christian faith and activity was 
fully equal to her personal energy and efficiency." The Lex- 
ington Alarm Rolls state that John Tyler, Jr., of Attleboro, 
was a private on the Lexington Alarm Roll of Captain Moses 
Wilmarth's first company. Colonel John Daggett's 4th Bristol 
County regiment, which marched from Attleboro April 19, 
1775, and served eleven days. In Daggett's History of Attle- 
boro, there is service attributed to John Tyler and John Tyler, 



£00 The Descendants of Job Tylee 

Jr., in April, 1775, in Caleb Richardson's company, Colonel 
Timothy Walker's regiment. In 1776 the same history noted 
that John Tyler, Jr., is on a committee to give notice of per- 
sons using " India Tea " after March. John Tyler, a ser- 
geant, served in Captain Richardson's company, which marched 
into the State of Rhode Island, between April 8,1 and May 25, 
1777, " to hold the line until men could be raised for two 
months for that purpose." His name appears again on the 
muster roll of the Attleboro troops as a member of Captain 
Ebenezer May's company, August 22 to September 24, 1778. 
Harford, Susquehanna County, was settled in 1790 by the 
" Nine Partners," by which name the place was generally known 
until 1807. Deacon John Tyler went there in the autumn of 
1794. He was nearly fifty years old when he moved to this 
almost unbroken wilderness. " Five of his children were grown 
up and had already migrated to Pennsylvania. . . . The 
four younger children, among whom was Joab 
" moved " in the family caravan. A huge canvas-covered 
wagon, drawn by oxen, was their vehicle by day, and much of 
the way, their tent by night. A cow, led or driven alongside, 
furnished no inconsiderable part of their daily food and drink. 
They were weeks in performing a journey that now can be 
accomplished in 24 hours. Deacon John's was the first frame 
house built in the town. A " reading meeting " was established 
by vote of the people in 1794, and John Tyler was chosen to 
conduct it. But for ten years there were no taxes, military 
duties, civil rulers, or church organization. In 1800 a Con- 
gregational church was organized consisting of seven members, 
all of whom were Tylers, Thachers and Carpenters. In 1803 
John Tyler was chosen one of the first deacons, and public 
worship was now held in his house, sometimes also in his bam. 
In this house also was the first school. In 1807, on petition 
of the inhabitants, the settlement was constituted a town and 
election district under the name of Harford, so called after 
Hartford, Conn., but varied in the spelling to agree with the 
pronunciation. In 1810, John Tyler removed still further into 
the wilderness and pitched his tent on a lofty tableland, which, 
from its commanding elevation, was called by him, and has 
ever since bom the name of Ararat. There also a Congrega- 
tional church was soon established, of which he became one of 
the first deacons. The children were all bom in Attleboro.

634 MAJOR EBENEZER5 TYLER (John*), born in 
Attleboro, Mass., September 8, 1760; died in Pawtucket, R. I., 
October 15, 1827; married (1), Mary French, who died in 
Attleboro October 3, 1804, aged 44; daughter of Joseph 
French; married (2), Mrs. Rachel (Deane) Forbes, born in 
Norton, Mass., November 24, 1773 ; died March 5, 1834, aged 
60, s. p. He resided in Attleboro and Pawtucket. He was at 
the head of the Attleboro Manufacturing Company, which 
became, in 1809, The Tyler Manufacturing Company. The 
Major was a very capable man and it was a prosperous business 
concern for many years. At the time of the Revolution there 
were two Ebenezer Tylers in Attleboro, possibly three. One 
served as a private and one as a lieutenant, in the war. He 
who became "Major " was one of these. When Captain Rich- 
ardson marched into the State of Rhode Island " to hold the 
line till men could be raised for two months for that purpose," 
Ebenezer Tyler and Ebenezer Tyler, Jr., responded, and re- 
mained in the company which was raised to replace this com- 
pany. The private marched on the Lexington Alarm, April 
19, 1775, and served at intervals for about a month at a 
time, in 1777, 1778 and 1780; the lieutenant served a short 
time in 1777, from May to October, 1778, and in the summer 
of 1780. Major Ebenezer Tyler probably served as a captain 
in the " South Company " of the town militia. An Ebenezer 
Tyler, of Attleboro, was in Captain Moses Wilmarth's company 
in Rhode Island from March to August , 1781. Major Tyler's 
will was dated October 10, 1823 ; probated November 6, 1827. 
His wife Rachel had life interest in the land, house, bams and 
buildings situated in Pawtucket, furniture, etc., and pew No. 
40 in Catholic Baptist meeting-house in Pawtucket. His 
daughter Nancy, wife of Daniel Greene, had lands in Paw- 
tucket. The children of his daughter, Lucinda Richardson, 
deceased, received $1,000 eacb. A legacy was made to Rachel 
Tyler Dean, " Niece of my beloved wife Rachel." His son 
William Tyler, was residuary legatee and executor. His wife, 
Rachel, left her property by will to the Deane family.

his sick brother, Comfort, from disease contracted in Monte- 
zuma ; married Deliverance Whiting, who died in 1862, aged 
94. He was in the Revolution, probably, but his record is 
not known. In 1792 or 1794 he removed to Onondaga County, 
and settled in " Tyler Hollow," which was named for him. 
The town of Marcellus and Onondaga County were organized 
in 1794, and he was among the very earliest settlers in the 
town. In 1797 he was appointed supervisor, and was the first 
justice of the peace in 1798. Some of the first courts of com- 
mon pleas and general sessions held in the county, from 1794 
to 1803, were held in his house. He was one of the incor- 
porators of the Skaneateles turnpike in 1806. He built saw,

grist and fulling mills in " Tyler Hollow." The eldest child 
was bom in Ashford, the others probably all in " Tyler Hol-

639 COLONEL COMFORT^ TYLER (Job*), bom in 
Ashford, Conn., February 22, 1764; died in Montezuma, N. Y., 
August 5, 1827; married (1), 1786, Deborah Wemple, a half- 
sister of General Herkimer ; she died soon after marriage ; mar- 
ried (2), Betsey Brown. He claimed to be a descendant of 
Wat Tyler, the Revolutionist in the time of Richard II. He 
received a good education and entered the American army in 
1778 and served at West Point. In 1783 he removed to Can- 
ghuawaga, N. Y., on the Mohawk River, where he went on 
General James Clinton's expedition to establish a boundary 
line between New York and Pennsylvania. At the age of 24, he 
became a member of the famous " Lessee Company." It was 
travel through the wilderness, of New York State, in connection 
with this company, which awakened Mr. Tyler's thoughts to 
the beauty and fertility of the new country, and he resolved 
to settle there. In the spring of 1788, in company with Major 
Danforth, he pushed ahead 50 miles into the wilds and began 
the first permanent settlement of Onondaga County. He felled 
the first tree and constructed the first piece of turnpike road 
west of Fort Stanwix (Rome). The early settlers ground their 
corn in wood mortars. The oak stump which (hollowed out) 
answered for Colonel Tyler's grist-mill was standing (sound) 
in 1845. He was a favorite with the Indians, who called him 



306 The Descendants of Job Tylee 

" To-whan-la-gua," meaning " one that is double," capable of 
two states in life ; i. e., could act the role of laborer or play the 
gentleman. He was the first salt manufacturer (in a com- 
mercial sense) in this region. The year of his arrival, he was 
shown a salt spring by Indians, who had, for their own uses, 
been taught by the Jesuits a primitive mode of procuring salt. 
Before that time the spring had been held in superstitious awe, 
as accursed by a demon, who made its waters bitter. Mr. 
Tyler took an iron kettle of 15 gallons capacity and in 9 hours 
had made 13 bushels of salt. This was the natal day of our 
American salt trade. Colonel Tyler was surveyor of the Ca- 
yuga reservation, leading promoter of the original Seneca Turn- 
pike Road and Cayuga Lake Bridge, an active worker in 
establishing schools and churches ; justice for the town of 
Manlius in 1794 ; same year he was the first supervisor, until 
1798. Was sheriff of Onondaga County ; the first postmaster, 
and afterwards, from 1799 to 1802, was appointed county 
clerk. In the years 1796-1797, was in the legislature; he 
obtained the charter for the Cayuga Bridge Company, in which 
the famous Aaron Burr was a leading stockholder. This Burr 
acquaintanceship was the beginning of the only shadow chap- 
ter in Colonel Tyler's remarkable biography. On December 6, 
1805, Colonel Tyler landed at the island of poor, beguiled 
Blennerhasset, with 4 boats and 30 men, some of whom were 
armed. (The going armed would not seem in itself unusual 
in a pioneer region.) This affair, greatly impaired Colonel 
Tyler's fortunes and blighted his political prospects. Colonel 
Tyler, whenever charged with treasonable intent, always indig- 
nantly denied it ; but the episode embittered and saddened the 
remainder of his life. He said to his little grandchild — " when- 
ever persons refer to this matter, you are to tell them, whatever 
might have been contemplated, you know that no harm to our 
country was intended by Mr. Tyler." In 1811 he moved to 
Montezuma, N. Y., where he became deeply interested in the 
Cayuga (Salt) Manufacturing Company. To make the town 
more accessible, he superintended the building of two long 
bridges over the Seneca and Clyde Rivers, with a 3-mile turn- 
pike over Cayuga marshes. Later he lived a few years at 
Hoboken, N. J., to superintend the draining of salt meadows. 
In the War of 1812 he served as assistant commissary general 
(with the rank of colonel) to the Northern Army. After the 



Fifth Gknekation S07 

war the Erie Canal policy engaged his most earnest attention. 
He labored equally with the most zealous until success was 
assured. Colonel Tyler's affability, sympathy, animation, 
originality, knowledge of human life and nature, united to an 
ever-present benevolence, caused his society to be sought and 
delightfully esteemed; his home was the constant scene of 
cordial hospitalities. He had great capacity for achievement, 
both in range and degree. Comfort's remains were removed to 
Syracuse by a grandson, many years after his death, and rest 
in a tomb in the chief cemetery of the city.

1825 ; married Prudence Brown, of Scotch parentage, who died 
about 1845. He removed to New York state with his brothers, 
and resided in Marcellus. William and his brother Samuel 
received word one day that their brother Comfort was at the 
point of death and they went to see him in his home in Monte- 
zuma, N. Y., and stayed about a week. There was much sick- 
ness in Montezuma, and the two brothers, after their return to 
Marcellus, were taken with a fatal illness and each lived only 
about a week. Comfort, however, on whose account they had 
made their last joumey, lived for two years after their death. 
The records of William's children are rather meager, in some 
instances, and the order of their seniority, as well as many mat- 
ters of family interest, is determined by a letter from Mrs. 
Genevieve (Tyler) Dresser, a granddaughter. The children 
were probably bom in Marcellus.

1429 SARAH (SALLY) PIERPOINT* TYLER* 

* The Porter Family Oenealogy, on page 380 has this erroneous lineage: 
"William Tyler, Milford, Conn., had John Tyler, of Wallingford, Conn., 
who had William Tyler, who married Jerusha Sedgwick, who had Daniel 
Tyler, who married Sarah Edwards, who had Sarah Pierpoint Tyler." 
Readers of this work will learn that the " Milford " line (except for 
certain intermarriages'), is entirely distinct from this, the " Andover " 
line, from which Sarah Pierpoint Tyler sprung. " John Tyler " had no 
such son, " William Tyler " ; Jerusha Sedgwick married Samuel Tyler, son 
of William Tyler, son of William Tyler, son of William Tyler of Milford.

Colonel of the First regiment of Connecticut, Daniel Tyler, of 
Norwich, a worthy representative of the father and grand-

Sixth Generation 389 

Mass., at the home o"f her son, Prof. W. S. Tyler, August 28, 
1844 ; daughter of Deacon Jonathan and Abigail (Hart) Sey- 
mour, of Oswego, New York, and descended from Thomas 
Wells, Governor of Connecticut, Anthony Hawkins and Rich- 
ard Treat, all original patentees of the royal charter of that 
colony; married (2), Sophronia D. Johnson, who died in 1890. 

Prof. W. S. Tyler says : " My mother was practical and 
sensible. But she was also intellectual, reflective, imaginative, 
emotional, spiritual, fond of reading and intent on the intel- 
lectual and spiritual improvement of her children far beyond the 
average of women and much above the level of those by whom 
she was surrounded. She was a beautiful woman, with a 
broad high forehead, large liquid dark blue, almost black, eyes, 
and a figure at once winning and commanding. . . . Her 
voice was musical, and fitted her to be the leading female singer 
in the choir. ... A cultivated mind and a loving heart 
were the sceptre of her power. My father, naturally stem 
and firm almost to obstinacy, was softened and swayed by her 
influence. . . . And though she overworked body and 
mind and heart, and died when she was only fifty-six, she lived 
to see all her sons, not only converted and educated, but actively 
and successfully engaged in the work of educating others." 

A biography of Deacon Joab Tyler would include much of 
the early history of the town of Harford, to which he came 
when ten years of age and began to undergo the hardships of 
the pioneer. He was twenty-six when his father turned over 
to him his Harford home and left him to take a leading part, 
throughout his long life, in the history of the town. He was 
his father's favorite son and partner. He was soon made dea- 
con in his father's place and he and his partners ran the village 
store. He was justice of the peace. Prof. W. S. Tyler says 
in an obituary notice: "In all the several lines of material, 
educational and religious progress, Deacon Joab Tyler was 
truly pioneer, building miles of turnpike and plank road with 
his own limited means ; contributing to the extent of his ability, 
and even beyond his ability to the erection of improved school- 
houses and attractive churches; taking the lead in support 
of capable and faithful teachers and preachers; struggling 
against nature and untoward circumstances with efforts and 
expenditures that might have created a city under more favor- 
able auspices, to build up a flourishing town in the backwoods 



390 The Descendants of Job Tylee, 

and among the Alleghany Mountains, but in all his toils, labor- 
ing and praying chiefly that it might be a city of the living 
God. 

" In those days when distilling and rum selling were uni- 
versally deemed lawful and proper occupations, he was a dis- 
tilhng and rum selling deacon; and inasmuch as his house 
(being near to the church) was always the hotel for ministers 
from out of town, it often occurred, on the arrival of some 
clergyman, especially at some ' Ministers' meeting,' that the 
writer, in his boyhood, was sent off' to the store with his hands 
full of ' decanters,' for a fresh supply of whiskey, rum and 
brandy, for their refreshment. But no sooner had Doctor 
Beecher with his coadjutors blown their blasts, and announced 
the temperance reformation, than Deacon Tyler bought out 
his partners, and at a great pecuniary sacrifice, closed the dis- 
tillery and stopped the sale of rum in the store." The chil- 
dren were born in Harford.

who died in Weymouth, Mass., June 9, 1822; aged 32 ; married 
(2), Nancy N. Newell, who died in Aubumdale February 14, 
1876, aged 75. He was graduated from Brown University 
in 1809. He went into the manufacture of cotton goods with 
his father in Pawtucket, and after a time determined upon the 
ministry as a profession. His style was epigrammatic and 
he was fearless in uttering his thought. He was settled as the 
colleague of Rev. Simeon Williams over the Congregational 
church of South Weymouth and remained as sole pastor thirteen 
years. In 1832 he was installed pastor of the church in South 
Hadley, Mass., and remained seven years. In 1839 he removed 
to Amherst, Mass., where he remained for some time under a 
commission from the Mass. Home Missionary Society. In 
1847 he became proprietor and editor of the Northampton 
Courier, and remained two years. In 1852 he removed to Paw- 
tucket, Mass., which he represented in the Massachusetts Consti- 
tutional Convention in 1853. In 1863 he went to live in Au- 
bumdale. He was much interested in Mt. Holyoke Seminary, 
one of its first trustees, and a valued friend and advisor of its 



392 The Descendants of Job Tyleb- 

founder, Miss Mary Lyon. For many years Mr. Tyler was 
an untiring pioneer in the cause of the Tyler family biography. 
November 13, 1866, in addressing a kinsman, he said : " I 
have spent time and money for years ; and now, lacking less 
than 2 months of 78 years, I wish to finish the business and 
leave it in good shape for my survivors." Alas, his dream, to 
" finish " and publish a Tyler family history, was never real- 
ized! Among many generous thoughts, one very dear to him 
and long entertained, was some day to bring together members 
of the whole clan Tyler into a genuine family reunion ; the mate- 
rialization of this happy vision was never in his lifetime seen! 
After long, long years of waiting, the Tyler reunion occurred 
in 1896, in North Andover, Mass., but Mr. Tyler had passed 
beyond.

20, 1882; married, May 15, 1855, Eliza Chapman, bom in 
New Bridge, Onondaga County, N. Y., April 20, 1837. She 
lives (1907) in Heybum, Idaho, with her sons. When Mr. 
Tyler was about nine years old his father died, and he became 
the ward of his uncle, John Tyler, who was one of the pro- 
jectors of the Erie Canal with De Witt Clinton and others, 
and lived in Syracuse. George Tyler started the clothing busi- 
ness in Syracuse and increased gradually until he was one 
of the leading merchants of the city. He bought the first sew- 



Sixth Genekation 401 

ing machine in that part of the state, and at one time con- 
trolled a large part of the salt industry in northern New York. 
His widowed mother and the younger children lived with him in 
Syracuse and he educated his brothers, and Hiram and Laurens 
became associated with him in business. About 1853 he opened 
a large business house in Burr Oak, Mich., his brothers looking 
after the Syracuse house, and later going also to Burr Oak. 
There he built up a store not unlike the great department stores 
of the present day, and kept everything that the people in the 
surrounding country would need; great corn cribs were built 
and all kinds of grain were taken from the farmers in exchange 
for other goods. His business averaged over a hundred thou- 
sand dollars a year for a number of years. There was no larger 
business of the kind between Buffalo and St. Louis than his, at 
one time. In one brief hour, however, a fire swept it all away ; 
but from the ashes Mr. Tyler started anew, paying off all his 
indebtedness. Mr. Tyler had vast energy and great business 
capacity and was very social and genial. In 1879 he retired on 
account of failing eyesight. He had made the town of Burr 
Oak and his death was mourned by many, far and near. His 
generosity and helpfulness, together with his social gifts and 
power of repartee gave him an honored place in the life of the 
people. The children were born in Burr Oak.
